This Is Not Just About "Posh India"

A picture from to remind us all that this tragedy is not just about people who patronize luxury hotels. (Also see's coverage of the attacks.)

And a big, BIG fuck-you to NDTV for writing headlines like: "When posh India was held hostage".

How about this, from Sunil Mukhi:

"Headlines Today should earn everyone's undying contempt for stringing together video images of the Taj hotel burning, adding canned machine-gun fire and music (MUSIC!!!) and making a kind of "catchy theme" out of the result."

We disconnected our TV a couple of months ago.

Indeed. And we have American television to thank for that trend of adding music and special graphics to news. Why doesn't it strike more people as asinine, I don't know.
