Around the world.

What is going on around the globe? Here is today’s news briefs:

The Wall Street Journal has reported that the NSA has continued its illegal wiretapping actions, even after congress explicitly told them it was illegal. The NSA collected and scanned all emails and phone calls for ‘strange’ activity and patterns. A reader somewhere wondered, “maybe the NSA has the missing White House emails.”

The BBC reports that China is accusing the United States of double standards on human rights, only ordering beef with broccoli.

Random visual poetry can be beautiful The most hypnotic website is up, flickrvision. The site takes photos uploaded to a public photo site, Flickr, and displays them one at a time – from all over the globe.

This is Wally Ballou signing off.


  1. Back in my school days, I exasperated an art teacher by making baseball the subject of every project she assigned to me. After she pleaded with me to do something else, I created a sculpture of Muhammad Ali.

    In that spirit, here is my favorite news of the week from China.

  2. Yes, Chan the Man. My art teacher was the same way, forcing us to make lame mugs. Parents, if a child asks you to ‘drink out of this, I made it for you’ – only PRETEND drink! You will thank me later.
    Meanwhile the teacher had a stack of old magazines laying there waiting to be read. If I can read a Sports Illustrated with Dick Allen juggling and smoking, I not make ashtray mister.
