OT - Observations from Europe
When you are stuck in a small hotel in a small town in Spain.....and the TV has only 10 channels...you become gratefull that at least one of those channels is BBC Europe...translation, I can at least understand what is being said.
After 1 hour, it repeats....guess what rates up there with the war in Irag, nuc material in Iran, and Shell Oil's deal with the Middle East to buy LNG.....................Michale Jackson's trial..
Add to that the 30 min segment where they bash americans and their cars (like calling the Cadilac Escalade the "Black Male Automobile"), you start to get a sense of how other countries see us.
Which lead creadance to the saying "Perception is 49% of the Truth".
PS....after 2 hours, they finally mentioned how the Pope was doing.....in that time I heard about the Jackson trail 3 times and who won for best picture... [img]images/graemlins/offtopic.gif[/img]
