We read the Saturday New York Times so that you don't have to. Get a glimpse of these gems:
-- China, the biggest importer exporter of seafood to the US, is awash in "water supplies contaminated by sewage, industrial waste, and agricultural runoff that includes pesticides. The fish farms, in turn, are discharging wastewater that further pollutes the water supply." Mmmm, pass the shrimp.
-- In Ohio, a state whose electoral votes narrowly swung two elections toward President Bush," all five voting systems "have critical flaws that could undermine the integrity of the 2008 general election," a report commissioned by the Democratic secretary of state has found.
-- Fred D. Thompson has not just a guys' guy's self-awareness, but a sense of humor about how he's married to a FLILF! (In an AP survey, he cited his "trophy wife" as his favorite possession.)
-- This week, I told you that Google will soon be in our bathtubs. Now, the increasingly omnipresent company is developing a competitor of Wikipedia.
-- On the lines of the more things change, the more they stay the same: "Report says the rich are getting rich faster, much faster."
