Remember now these are Fox News reporters.

And the radical left just hates Fox News with a passion.

Oh well, it's back to trouncing CNN and MSNBC combined in the ratings....

Having trouble moving your bowels or something? A "fear" that you might be consipated followed by the "smell" of success?

What, exactly, are you trying to describe?

Hallelujah!! I'm glad to hear that they are free, but did you hear the way Steve Centanni was saying how "beautiful" the Palestinian people are...

Stockholm syndrome.

Have you ever noticed how so many of the jounalists and other westerners kidnapped by the arabs are actually sympathetic to their cause before, but even more so after they are abducted?

Often they are in the area as teachers working at Universities in Beirut (Thomas Sutherland, Joseph Cicippio, Frank Reed) hostage negotiators (Terry Waite), journalists trying to express the arab point of view (Daniel Perl) etc.

Oh, granted, every now and then they'll kidnap an Israeli soldier just for some balance.

News Flash! Fox reports that after their journalists were freed they expressed the desirability of the media staying in the Gaza strip so that "they can continue to tell the story of the Palestinian people...."

I remember the Frank Reed incident very well. His wife Mrs. Fifi taught me English, and his son was in my class at the International College (I.C). I was 10 years old, in the middle of classroom, when our principal entered and interrupted the class, and whispered a few words in Mrs. Fifi's ears; she fainted instantly for a few seconds. We (the students) had no clue of what was going on, then she called on her son and told him the news and they both started crying. We then knew that Frank Reed was released. That was the last day I saw Mrs. Fifi. The next day and onward, we had a substitute teacher. I never forgot that day.

Does that mean I should shelve any thought on taking a sabbatical so I can teach in the Middle East? I had that fantasy of teaching in Gaza or in some walled in refugee camp in the West Bank so I can connect some missing dots. I still can't understand why they hate us. What do you think boo? Should I do it or do you think I will be subject to the "Stockholm Syndrome"?
