I notice that the story about the Sudanese man forced to marry a goat (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/4748292.stm?lsm) is still the most-emailed story on the BBC's news website, even after a week or so. It's actually a story which surfaced back in February, but apparently one of the tabloids picked it up and ran it as a recent event, which aroused interest, so to speak, all over again. Which is strange, because as far as I recall the story didn't cause any interest at all when it first ran, and now suddenly everybody's emailing it to everybody else.
I'm also a little confused - although there's probably a perfectly good explanation - about why, when their Prime Minister was outed for lying, the protestors in Budapest went out and burned down Hungarian state television rather than the Parliament building. Seems kind of counter-intuitive to me. If Tony Blair was caught lying, would we necessarily march on the BBC? Still, the footage of the lone water cannon I was watching just before I went to bed last night was a classic of its kind; hosing down anybody in its way, to no great effect, and then running out of water. I still haven't managed to find out what happened to the guys inside.
