I absolutely agree with you. Slashdot has slid so far down hill it isn't funny. I am not arguing for a lot of these kind of stories, only that Slashdot has always included politics and major national and worldwide events as well. Just because we are nerds, it doesn't mean we cannot discuss things besides quantum computing and the subtleties of Big O notation.

"How is this related to slashdot's supposed themes, this is just general news"

I don't necessarily agree, but some would argue that this is "Stuff That Matters". If the tagline was "High Tech News / Stuff That Matters" you would have a point. You'd do better to ask how which finger you press the "6" key with is in keeping with the supposed theme. (It is neither news, nor does it matter)

Life is a healthy respect for mother nature laced with greed.
