The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Calling It Like It Is

These are not the protesters you speak of.

I definitely didn't expect it, but it would seem that Agence France-Presse has finally discovered the subtle difference between a "protest" and a riot. (Yes, it's a topic we've covered frequently over here.)

Hey, what can I say? This is definitely a step in the right direction! Now all we need to do is get them to show the slightest hint of curiosity about what it was that caused this supposed "catastrophe" to happen.
