The whole article is here and the part that made me go "What the hell?" is:

"The original photo, taken as the raid was occurring, famously shows Clinton in the center of the room, with her hand over her mouth. But the newspaper Der Zeitung, described by the Jewish Week as ultra-Orthodox, has a policy of never printing photos of women in its pages because it thinks they could be sexually suggestive.".

I beg your pardon - did you just reference Hilary Clinton and "sexually suggestive" in the same article?

And this just in - the updated apology from Der Zeitung, explaining that they were not relegating women to a lower status by photoshopping Hillary and what's-her-face out. No, Judeo-Christian religions do that every day all day just fine without help from Photoshop.

In other news that's not completely stupid, according the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), the amount of water passing through Memphis right now would fill up a football field 44 feet deep in one second. So sayeth the Washington Post. We're far enough away from the Mississippi we're not in any danger from it, but there's a smaller river that runs right by our and my mother's neighborhood that might be trouble. Her zip code is under possible flood watch and every time I check the map a few more black lines (representing possible flooded streets) pop up. Feh. She says she's fine and she is up on a hill so we'll see what happens. After we dug out those trenches in the flowerbeds we didn't have any more problems with standing water over here.

I'm still working on recapping February til now. Heh.
