Here is not the news


So, the BBC strike held firm, and there were no significant news bulletins today. That's lucky because, as we all know, nothing significant actually happened today.

Except this: Five teenage girls killed in bus crash

And this: Ten dead in multiple bombings

And this: Students riot over social security reforms

And this: 32 people killed by flash floods

And this: 28 die in gun combat

And this: Three drivers shot dead

And this: Bombs rip through cinemas

And this: Soldiers inadvertently shoot man dead while breaking up fight

And this: Girls drown on school outing

Slow day for news, really. I suppose all the dead and wounded should take comfort from the fact that, had the events occurred in Britain, they would have had decent coverage on the television news.
