Lovely Satire

These people really have an instinct for news, don’t they? If they were reporting the news on the day in 1453 when Constantinople fell to the Moslems and the city’s population was slaughtered, their headline and lead would have been something like this:

Lovely City Remembered
May 29–Constantinople, which was conquered and sacked by the Ottomans yesterday, with many thousands of its Christian inhabitants slaughtered and others sold into slavery, was described by survivors as a place of many wonderful memories.

So writes Lawrence Auster, satirizing the way the press has handled the case of a man in Britain who was beheaded on his own front lawn.
