I just read it. Basically nothing was said about food in the review, it was about the quality of service from the time they, the reviewer and her mother, arrived at the restaurant till the time they left. Where she went wrong I think is when she said a waitress was a harpy, and the restaurant owner or manager (the wording is not clear) was pretentious and acting like a diva.

That certainly helps. But I'm not convinced it's the whole story.

Monty's write up is interesting, what I'd like to see next is a similar setup but with two high frequency sine waves: the first sinewave has a fixed frequency and the second sinewave varies in frequency around the first.

At first scan,

I immediately changed to classic view because the new view involves too much scrolling to scan the stories and I want to see the text, so headlines only is no good.

I feel there is not enough contrast between each story's background and the page background. It doesn't take a lot, a bit more contrast would do.

How do I manage what comments I see ?

The page width in the comments is not wide enough.

The right column is too wide (but story and comment width seem ok if I reduce the width of my browser : the right column appears to go to the bottom of the page).

the infamous "helicopter video" they'd have published the whole thing instead of editing it down to make it look worse like Assange did. And before the fanboys downmod me YES that's what happened, he admitted to it, and later published the entire video. Which you can still view on Wikileaks but the site "collateralmurder" still links to the edited version.

The edited video does not seem dishonest, it does not change the message in a significant manner, and as you said they did publish the full raw footage. And the website you mention has both videos up and a third version with commentary by US soldiers.

Do you have any other footage, or links ?
