A PICTURE'S WORTH A THOUSAND LIES:

Don't know about your paper, but ours today ran this headline:

Holocaust Deniers Gather in Iran

below this photo:

Now, it's obviously interesting that anti-Zionist Jews attended the loon fest, but to only show them seems almost anti-Semitic. They surely aren't the center of the story, just the most freakish act in the carny.

You have to be kidding me.

Yeah, "almost" anti-Semitic. That picture was the reason they had the conference.

Some editor looked at that photo, and thought - "Robots. Mindless robots. They're even plugged in." Or perhaps - "I can't show the screaming Muslims, they will burn down my building. Ahhh, the weaklings - I'll use them."

I wonder if they had to be paid to attend. Or if they were first in line.

I see by your outfit that you are a cowboy.
I see by your outfit that you're a cowboy too.
We see by our outfits that we are both cowboys,
If you'll buy an outfit,
you'll be a cowboy too.

Then God cried and shook his head in dismay.
