Palestinian rocket hits city

So reads the AP headline. Buried deep in the article was the information that should have been the lead and headline:

The rocket flew 7 miles through the air and exploded in the courtyard of a school in Ashkelon, a city of 110,000 on Israel's coast north of Gaza. The school was empty at the time and no one was hurt. School security cameras showed a large cloud of white dust rising from the point of impact.

Thank G-d it was empty.

Here's the link to the rest of the article.

If an Israeli rocket had hit a terrorist hole and the PA was quick enough to proclaim that it was someone's home day-care business it would have been front page and CNN news alerts.

Well, the Israeli public can only expect more of the same, after voting for Kadima and the "disengagement" plan. Like the Palestinians choosing Hamas: it seems neither electorate has acted with particular foresight.

When I saw this:
"...it seems neither electorate has acted with particular foresight"

My head read:
"...it seems neither electorate has acted with particular foreskin."

And I thought at first, "Well, how are they going to do THAT?"

Which just goes to show I'm old and I need glasses.
