As a fellow member of the IEEE, I can attest to the wealth of articles on IEEExplore. It's possible I am one of the dunces of the IEEE, but man, some of those articles wind up in serious egghead land for me. Some scary smart people belong to this organization...
I read about it on google news, caught the facts from several sources, then came to/. to see what my idiot nerdy colleagues thought about the news. Anyone coming to slashdot for breaking news are the same folk who use/. poll results for any useful stats...
If the Dakar rally, World Cup, or World Series of Poker were bombed, we'd hear about that too. Bombings of sporting events make news no matter in the world they are...this is not a US story, this is a world event.
Look at how many different nationalities are represented in a top level marathon - the Olympics are the only more diversified sport event I can think ok.
And I meant this comment to the story submitter. Maybe yes, more VM specific distros are needed, but without knowing what you are looking for, how can we help? You state you have a specific environment yet want more off the shelf options. Er, which is it? For what? Come on/. admins, please edit or revise before posting story nonsense.
It is a time honored/worn line, true, but the timing of the joke is what makes it funny. Audience, timing, material. The stuff of comedy. Try a glass of warm milk and settle down a bit, bubba:) it'll all make sense.

The bombers flew 6,500 miles to bomb a South Korean island with mock explosives. Earlier this month the U.S. Military ran mock B-52 bombing runs over the same South Korean island. The U.S. military says it shows that it can execute precision bombing runs at will with little notice needed. The U.S. also reaffirmed their commitment to protecting its allies in the region. The North Koreans have been making threats to turn South Korea into a sea of fire. North Korea has also made threats claiming they will nuke the United States' mainland."
