The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Whence the Occupation?

On a related note to that last one, it would seem that Reuters really does have "occupation" on the brain: Notice that Israeli troops were withdrawn from the West Bank city of Jenin—which, incidentally, is known colloquially as "the city of suicide bombers," according to Aaron Klein's excellent book—in the year 2002:

Perhaps Reuters needs to update its stylebook to reflect these "recent" changes? (Many thanks to soccer dad for this excellent catch!)
