Must See Egyptian TV

You say you are Egyptians?!So, are you thinking about taking PD up on our travel advice by booking your tickets now for the splendid shores of the Red Sea? Egypt really is a lovely country, full of the most tolerant people one could ever hope to meet.

Really.

In fact, did you catch the latest episode of كاميرا خفية hosted by the lovely Iman Mubarak? Oh, it was a real gasser!

The set up for the show was three separate prominent actors and media personalities were made to believe that they had been tricked into doing an interview on an Israeli news station. Oh the hilarity!

Soldiers Needed!

Boots to the rescue!Boy, the British really have their act together. The PD staff took a few potshots at the UK’s need to put a few extra thousand military boots down in Olympic Town, but it turns out the UK Government had it completely right.

The Verdict is In: The Olympic Opening Ceremony Sucked

Thank you, Pirate Bay.Danny Boyle the master mind? behind the London Olympics Opening Ceremony Friday night, didn’t mince words when describing his show. “There's no bullshit in it and there's no point-making either.”

While that might be all ben and bene, PD can’t help but wonder if he actually saw his show, as it was quite a load of progressive bullshit, and by ‘quite’ we mean massive, and if he doesn’t call that bullshit, well then it’s certainly horseshit.

Response to Tragedy

The Batman shooting was tragic, and our prayers go out to the families.There are so many ways to take this tragedy in, and yes, it is a tragedy. PD sends prayers to all involved and their families. That doesn’t stop our pursuit of truth though. In order to best cover this incident, PD has divided our takes into separate sub-articles.

Be forewarned: The images and facts presented here are unsettling and disturbing. PD strives to write honestly about all matters, and the Colorado Shooting is no different.

Memory Lane Mondays will be back next week.

Article 1: The Blame Game shows who’s really at fault.

Article 2: Covers the fallacy of gun control.

Article 3: Why looking for the reason behind James Holmes’ actions is pointless.

Article 4: PD’s top Polish correspondent takes a brutally honest look at how individuals react to tragedies.

What Makes Some Deaths More Important Than Others

Political Dresser Special EditorialThe following is a special editorial by a member of the PD staff. The piece is extremely frank, and of a subject matter that could be disturbing to some readers. Discretion is advised.

Psycho Babble

How soon the Media forgets about Norway.Next up in the Media script comes the psychoanalysis of the poor afflicted killer. Everyone from Doctor Drew to Doctor Cuts-Off-Feet-For-Profit (his Christian name of course), will want to delve deep into this “hapless” man’s life.

Did he have a rough childhood? Did his high school sweet heart dump him via text msg? Was he----bullied in Grad School? Did his mom not give him enough hugs? Was his father absent? What terrible event pushed him to this? Did he see Sarah Palin’s target website? Did he shop at Target?
