if I could impose one media rule, it would be that following every column or TV segment featuring American political commentators dramatically unloading their Where-I-Was-on-9/11-and-how-I-felt tales, there would be similar recollections offered from parents in the Muslim world talking about how their children died from the pre-9/11 acts of the U.S. and its client states or from post-9/11 American bombs, drones, checkpoint shootings and night raids: just for the sake of "balance," which media outlets claim to crave . . . http://www.salon.com/news/opinion/glenn_......dex.html

Start your own news paper or whatever and then you can make your rules.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.
