The Word "OK" -- America's Contribution to the World
I've always wondered the origins of the word "OK". It is perhaps the
only word spoken in all the nations of the world (and in space!).
It is such a short word and conveys so much.
Turns out OK stands for "All Correct" (disputed, see link below).
I get it now.

Not OK -- Israel's Excesses
In case you didn't know, a ghastly war has broken out in the Middle-East and Arafat
has already claimed martyrdom.
If the leadership of Israel thinks it can crush terrorism via
terrorism of its own, it is so wrong. It is
precisely acts such as the one Israel is currently engaged in
(the state as terrorist) that breed suicide bombers.
