Wash Post gets one right

The Washington Post picks up on the expulsion of Montserrat refugees from the United States, and correctly calls it "Volcanic Absurdity."

This is why the WP is my favorite newspaper -- they're great at developing small but indicative stories from places as different as rural China, the Caribbean, Maryland suburbs, and the Virginia hi-tech corridor. Anyone can clip wire stories on Iraq, outsourcing, etc., but the WP puts real shoe leather to work finding stories that others might miss.
