One thing I’ve learned while researching columns is that oftentimes, the smaller the item, the louder it speaks.
Check this thirty-six worder from page A3 of the September 29 San Francisco Chronicle:
“Petroleum for Pyongyang: President Bush Friday authorized the first U.S. shipment of heavy fuel oil to North Korea in five years, a reward to Pyongyang for moving forward with its agreement to end its nuclear programs.”
That’s it, in its entirety. Its brevity, however, belies its true voluminous content. ‘Cause:
Isn’t North Korea, like Iraq and Iran, a charter member of Bush’s “Axis of Evil”?
