Under the August 18th headline "Va. Tourism Pitch Mimics
Gang's Sign," AP reports:
`
"...[Virginia's] tourism agency will eliminate images of
people making heart symbols with their hands...because the
gesture is also used by a violent street gang."
`
AP quotes the agency's prez:
`
"We regret if anyone interpreted the symbol as anything other
than a symbol of love as was intended."
`
Regret?
`
"...about $400,000 was spent on developing the campaign, ex-
cluding the purchase of ad time on broadcast outlets."

`
Under the same-date headline "Flight 93 Memorial Design
Worries Father," AP reports:
`
The father "said [what] he is looking for is a 'thorough,
honest investigation' of the design and the elements dis-
cussed by Alec Rawls, a conservative blogger....
`
"Rawls says the planned memorial faces toward Mecca...and
contends that a planned 93-foot tower with wind chimes would
act as an Islamic sundial."
`
Of course a thorough, honest investigation would have nothing
in common with the "investigation [that] concluded the hijack-
ers crashed when passengers rushed the cockpit and tried to
regain control of the aircraft."
`
The aircraft?
`
The one brought down on Cheney's order.

Under the August 20th headline "US Military Struggles To 'De-
feat' IEDs," AP quotes an Army medical officer in Iraq:
`
"The bad guys are getting smarter, using larger explosions
and better explosions.
`
"Business is up for us. We're seeing a lot of big stuff come
through."
`
Big stuff? Severe injuries.
`
AP quotes a recent Joint Forces Staff College report:
`
"The ground force in Iraq had not foreseen this threat in the
initial planning for Operation Iraqi Freedom."
