First, from the Columbia Daily Tribune: Karzai optimistic on poppies - and I'm simply loopy on Ecstacy.
From ABC News: Accused Smart Kidnapper Booted From Court - if he was that smart, he wouldn't be in court in the first place.
From the Washington Post: Men With Hate Group Ties Sought Bomb - is that anything like an "old school tie?"
ABC News, again: Sniping Between China, Japan Escalates - I wouldn't have thought that even a high-powered rifle had that kind of range.
From Newsday: Friend and foe greet Bush in upstate New York - and they stopped fighting with each other long enough to shake his hand.
From Forbes: Caspian Sea Pipeline to Be Unveiled - and so another successful Christo exhibit comes to a close.
From ISN: Reformers barred from standing in Iranian polls - hardliners, on the other hand, may stand or sit, at their sole discretion.
From Reuters India: Orthodox church stops recognising Jerusalem patriarch - but it still has a nagging feeling it knows him from somewhere.
Yeah, you're right; it's a curse.
