Re: Any hope at all?

Re: Awesome pictures

Just weigh in on the "fright" headline; until someone spelt out the "racist" implication, I just thought it was the type of bad pun tabloid journalism is famous for. It seems to be that if your immediate reaction was "OMG, that sounds like an Asian saying 'flight'!" Th...
