Rogue Nazis can ruin your whole day. Here are some quotes from a Cincinnati Enquirer article.

15-04-2001 18:39

This is why we need INDEPENDENT MEDIA CENTERS in the USA especially. US media often seem like they try to do the minimal possible, and then in addition try to add a rightwing corporate spin to many issues.
