The picture to the left is from today's New York Times. The headline reads "Nonstop Theft and Bribery Stagger Iraq" and the lead reads, "In Baghdad, a carwash uses water stolen from broken pipes. There is a sense that Iraq has slipped to new depths of lawlessness even as security has improved."
My reaction (and my lead, if I were writing the article) would have been "Despite war Iraqi's still wash their cars".
Isn't it funny how the same event can trigger such different interpretations ...
