Often we find it NOT interesting at all. Several clicks wasted not to mention the time taken. And blood pressure increases in tune with aroused annoyance.
This mental agony could have been avoided if only you had the wonder program : Interclue.

Barak Obama, the 44th American President and the 1st Unique President, one bounce each from Congressman and Senator to Presidency.
He told the students of his country, among other salient facts :
''Asking for help isn’t a sign of weakness, it’s a sign of strength. It shows you have the courage to admit when you don’t know something, and to learn something new.''
Strange. Detractors showed up on TV shows in plenty. But, did they fully study the speech before commenting on the speech, at all, is a moot point.
We are glad the Republicans are shivering in their boots now itself. The first year of presidency.
Would they NOT nominate a candidate in 4 year's time and make a unanimous choice ? Good.
One said: ''He asked the students to help the President --- that's wrong''. - - - [ Didn't see it in script.]
Another said: ''The choice of broadcast school from Chicago, his home town, is wrong''. [ Why not indeed ]
Yet another had it: ''Why should he address the Students ?'' - - - [ Conveniently forgetting, their own, Ronald Regan, a Republican, did speak to students, once]
An Oriental Maxim has it that: Only a tree that bears delicious fruits gets stoned.
Stoned by Crooks, Liars and Cheats, we suppose.

US soldier convicted of rape and murder What kind of parents brought up these five men ? What educational institution and teachers polished the minds of these five that held down a 14 year old girl-child while another raped her and later shoot and kill the rest of the family. May be they did a favour to the parents of the girl-child for the sight of five Americans raping their girl-child would certainly have haunted them for the rest of their lives. Or, perhaps the parents of the girl-child begged of the leader of the Gang-Rapists to shoot and kill the rest of the family as a favour. It is nice to know there are righteous people in America to sentence these rapists for life, unlike George Bush Junior, Richard Cheney and Sri Lankan Army in Jaffna Peninsula. - - - Please read on - - -
A former US soldier convicted of rape and murder while serving in Iraq will spend life in prison, a judge in the US state of Kentucky has confirmed. Steven Green, 24, is to serve five consecutive life sentences for raping a 14-year-old Iraqi girl and killing her and her family near Baghdad in 2006. The jury in Kentucky could not agree unanimously on his punishment and he was spared the death penalty. Four other soldiers are serving time for their roles in the crime. Their sentences range between 27 months and 110 years. Green was considered the ringleader.
Judge Thomas Russell confirmed Green would serve five consecutive life sentences with no chance of parole.
Three of the soldiers had admitted holding down Abeer Qassim al-Janabi, raping her and then killing her, her parents and her younger sister at the family's home in Mahmudiya before torching the building. Green was discharged from the 101st Airborne Division before the case came to light. He was the first ex-soldier to be charged under a US law that allows prosecution for crimes committed overseas.

Here's a piece of good news for all those that advocate Human Rights for All, including those that violate human rights of others today.
For they will need their own Human Rights in place one fine day when they are taken in for their transgressions of today --- yes their actions of today will certainly be questioned one day, soon !
MOSCOW, Russia (CNN) -- A Russian Supreme Court ruling on Thursday streamlined the probe of a well-known journalist's killing three years ago, an attorney told CNN.
Murdered Russian human rights advocate and journalist Anna Politkovskaya, shown here in 2005.
The court instructed prosecutors to renew the inquiry into the 2006 murder of Anna Politkovskaya by combining the various probes into her death into one murder case, said Karina Moskalenko, attorney for the Politkovskaya family.
The court reversed a lower court ruling that refused a request from Politkovskaya family members for one investigation into the case, ordering prosecutors to merge a case against three men accused of being accomplices in the murder with other inquiries into the October 2006 killing.A fierce critic of the Kremlin, Politkovskaya was found shot dead in her apartment building while she was working on a series of reports about Chechnya for the independent, Moscow-based newspaper Novaya Gazeta.
