As I came into work today and opened up the three newspapers we get (Washington Post, Washington Times, New York Times), I was really taken aback at the tasteless headline found on the front page of today's Washington Times: Joy explodes across Iraq. Given the fact that everybody is well aware of the real explosions (of cars, buildings, and, most horrifying of all, people) that go on across Iraq daily. And of course, this would not have escaped the headline writer either, who probably thought it was a cute little play on words. I really think it's disgusting, especially in light of the fact that 44 people died, and about 100 were wounded yesterday.
