the usual bad news

BAGHDAD, Iraq - A string of bombs killed 35 children and wounded scores of others as U.S. troops handed out candy Thursday at a government-sponsored celebration to inaugurate a sewage plant.
This is obviously a terrible thing, 35 children killed for no reason (not that having a reason would have made it ok).

But I must note... the inauguration of a sewage plant? You can't tell me the Iraqis are in charge because there's only one government in the world with so little shame that it would dare put on such a show, and it is that of the United States, which celebrates just such an inauguration every four years of it's own, only for something which spews even more garbage than a sewage plant and has less real value to society.
