Headline of the Day (hotd) and other tidbits

Hirschson to Investigators: Trust me, I hardly know how to read a bank account.

---printed in Yisrael HaYom newspaper about upcoming revelations in investigation into Hirschsons's alleged fraud, embezzlement, tax evasion and more...

Do not forget, Hirschson was the Finance Minister in Olmert's government until he was indicted. if he can hardly read a bank account, how the heck did he function as Finance Minister?

Another headline that was nominated for HOTD was the following...

'The Security Guard that ran away': I prefer to be alive than to be a dead hero.

He has a point, but then why did he become a security guard? If security guards are not willing to take that risk, what's the point of the job?

Also in the news, some Arabic newspaper whose names I cannot pronounce are reporting that the small Arabic country of Bahrain is sending a new Ambassador to the US, and it is a woman. A Jewish woman. Huda Ezra Nunu is her name, and she is part of a small Jewish community in Bahrain. She is head of the Human Rights movement of Bahrain and is now going to be its Ambassador to the US. Will wonders never cease?
