Well, bombs are apparently old news in the rest of the world because there's no sign of Toronto's bomb convoy, no mention of finding three bombs in a car at a gas station and closing down highways (yes, that's plural), major streets and a large swathe of streets, buildings, and businesses in Toronto for hours, no side bar on the bomber's previously couriered letter bombs, one of which burned a man's hands, on BBC News -- main page or the Americas page -- or CNN.com or CNN International or MSNBC. The latter did have a photo of Britney's "assets" being exposed. And the others did have in their list of other stories one on a bomb scare in Mexico.
So maybe it's not bombs, it's because they're bombs in Toronto. Sniff. I feel so snubbed.
