Teensy morsels fed to us baby birds...

I don't usually pay attention to the mainstream news, but I caught a smidgeon of ABC on the radio today. As usual, I confirmed my belief that I'm not missing much.

First I hear that Paul Bremer has completed 4 days of testifying before Congress. (I won't say what I think of that use of his valuable time..) He must have had lots of interesting things to say, and I would have loved to hear more. But what's the one tidbit that ABC finds important enough to relate? "Mr Bremer was forced to concede that some Iraqis view us as an 'occupying force.'"

And then the economic news. The stock market was buoyed by improvements in several economic indicators. So what specific morsel here does ABC think will edify us? "...but the Consumer Confidence Index failed to meet expectations, [Presumably meaning that that index was also up, but not as much as some unnamed person said he expected] reflecting concern about the war and the economy"
