Hello again iiwiiers
Sexist BBC! Three people have been charged with assault after a female police officer was hit by a pint glass in a pub. Would they have said 'a male police officer' if it was a man? I think not. Come on BBC, get with the program, it's 2009 already. It's particularly sexist as it's activity-related - I bet they wouldn't say 'female Secretary of State Hillary Clinton' or 'female dangerous idiot Jacqui Smith'. So, what the BBC, or at least the BBC in Bristol, is saying is 'politics is a fine job for the weaker sex but getting glassed by

Bar Workers Who Smoke Also Benefit From Smoking Ban, Study Finds. Well, duh! I mean, really. Lost boys rescued from mountain - damn you, BBC! It's just some boys that were lost! I was hoping to hear all about their adventures with Peter Pan, but it's not those lost boys.
I've commented from time to time upon crappy research, particularly market research. So much so that I didn't even mention the stupid ones that were going around commissioned by churches to celebrate Darwin by saying that sixty percent of people either didn't believe in evolution or were confused about it if you asked the question in a very silly voice. But now, at last, some good news, as the Chinese show how it's done! I'm sure our great government are taking notes even as you read.
that's all from me for now
see you around
