Could The Use Of Flying Death Robots Be Hurting America’s Reputation Worldwide? || The Onion

The First Responders debate the U.S. military’s use of drone planes to rain fiery death upon Afghanistan from above. (Aired 10/11/11)

I personally think ‘flying death robots’ is more effective than the euphemism ‘drone.’ If we called them flying death robots, wouldn’t people take the issue of drone strikes more seriously?

Photo of bag-carrying ambassador charms China 
A photo of the new U.S. ambassador  to China carrying his own backpack and ordering his own coffee at an  airport has charmed Chinese citizens not used to such frugality from  their officials.
ZhaoHui Tang, a  businessman from Bellevue, Washington, snapped the photo Friday on his  iPhone when he spotted Gary Locke at the counter of an airport  Starbucks. Locke is the first Chinese-American ambassador to China and a  former governor of Washington state.
Tang  uploaded the photo to the Chinese social media network Sina Weibo  because he thought it was cool to run into the new ambassador at  Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
He didn’t expect it to generate 40,000 reposts and thousands of comments.
"This  is something unbelievable in China," said Tang, a Chinese-American  citizen. "Even for low-ranking officials, we don’t do things for  ourselves. Someone goes to buy the coffee for them. Someone carries  their bags for them."
