Pirates!

Filed under: Culture,Politics — by teofilo @ 12:02 am

I had lunch with my girlfriend yesterday at Cafe Istanbul (which is very good, btw).  They were playing Al Jazeera English, which had a lot of in-depth coverage of the recent pirate attacks in the Gulf of Aden.  I was struck by how much more substantive it was than typical US news outlets, which I haven’t seen much of lately but which I’m sure have not been covering this important story with anything like the level of attention and seriousness it deserves.  Luckily we have Al Jazeera to fill that role.
