Interestingly some people with a lower birthrate aren't interested in his issue. But mention the possibility of bothering a polar bear and watch out

More competition for Mark Steyn from the Wall St Journal's 'Best of the Web':

Kofi Gets Tough"Secretary General Kofi Annan on Monday will propose establishing new rules for the use of military force, adopting a tough anti-terrorism treaty that would punish suicide bombers, and overhauling the United Nation's discredited human rights commission, according to a confidential draft of a report on U.N. reform," the Washington Post reports from Turtle Bay.
The Post doesn't say what sort of punishment Annan is proposing for suicide bombers. Presumably the death penalty wouldn't pass the "global test," and in any case it would be redundant. ScrappleFace.com suggests prison, but the space between the bars would have to be really narrow to hold in the smithereens. Maybe he can arrange for them to be met in paradise by 72 U.N. peacekeepers?

and even better:


Agence France-Presse, meanwhile, reports from London:
People poured into the capital from across the country, including 29-year-old human rights author Susanna Akono who travelled in a coach from Kent. . . .
Akono from Cambodia, who is married to a British man and is pregnant, said that she planned to go on a hunger strike from April 14 in protest against the continuing war on terror.
"I want to do everything I can to make sure my child has a secure future," she said.
Hat tip: Arthur Chrenkoff. Starve-the-fetus is certainly a novel method of ensuring that your child has a secure future. If Akono has a daughter, maybe she'll grow up and marry Michael Schiavo.
