So true.

Sorry for the OT. But on the weekend we were having some beers and 
laughing at Howard Dean "Microphone of Death" remixes. Love the Pointer 
Sisters one ;-) Apparently the US media managed to play the speech 700 
times in one day.

Today I thought I would find out the truth. Noise cancelling microphone 
and a huge noisy crowd. The crowd didn't even hear the scream.

The trouble is the media seldom makes much of an effort to set the 
matter straight even when they know they were wrong. I guess it hurts 
their brand.

So Pia, if you are ever at a noisy rally of penuinistas. No noise 
cancelling mike!
