Dog bites man!

So I can’t avoid stumbling over the free copies of “Österreich” at work. Today’s opener of the local news was a stunner: “Wieder Heroin am Karlsplatz gefunden” (“Heroin found at the Karlsplatz again”).


I guess tomorrow’s headline will be “Pope has been found to be catholic”.

I actually thought the Kronenzeitung was the most execrable result of the newsprint technology, but I guess there’s no bottom in that race.

    Hi TH, My guess is the headline would probably have been a far more interesting if it had been ‘Man bites Dog. ‘ I have to agree with you, that I find Kronenzeitung the pits.

    Ha! Good point, TH! I was reading that and thinking along the same lines? There’s heroin again in Karlsplatz? No way! WTF! Did they just decide to look again after forgetting for a long time? I also liked the picture of the “Karlsplatz Kids” who were, from what I could tell, just 3 normal teenage girls obviously not on drugs and probably just “slummin’ it” for pure amusement.

    Yep. I guess we had one of those days where nothing happened in Vienna.
