[About the title: Last week, one of the dimmest lights in the blogsophere (minor in European History and all) chose to honor the residents of Gush Katif by throwing some sand into the eye of a major media conglomerate. She published three silly pieces of media critism, two about the Times which she called Rejoicing with the Palestenians. Review the source material for yourself, and I think you'll agree that, overall, the Time's coverage was balanced, if not actually mourning with the Israelis.]
