The first 2 could well be on a list of the most OVER REPORTED stories not
just of the year but of the century. I've been reading scary stories about
"an emerging police state" for as long as I can remember and breathless
stories of questionable scientific quality screaming about impending
environmental collapse are a dime a dozen. Evil corporations that rule the
world has been "reported" to death, and as for "The International Year of
Cooperative", what is there to report on?
