What People Are Reading In Papers

Robertby_afp The New York Times most emailed piece Sunday?  Garry Willis's essay on how Jesus wouldn't have picked between the Democrats and the Republicans, and shouldn't be used by either.

The Los Angeles Times piece passed around most is staffer Catherine Saillant's feature on how no murder, gruesome accident, natural or political disaster opened her eyes as much as her 13-year-old daughter's activities on MySpace.com.

The Boston Globe's most popular article delves into how attitudes toward gay couples is dividing the Conservative movement in Judaism.

The Dallas Morning News has a piece on the welcoming market that awaits college grads headed toward careers in sales, marketing, advertising and public relations.

These are all very nice. But I'm going with the most-emailed article from Yahoo!, a tale of a giant hare haunting beloved vegetable gardens in a northeast England community. It's big, apparently - black and brown with one ear bigger than the other, and it brings to mind the Wallace and Gromit movie. Very nice. However what makes it so popular has got to be the accompanying photo. From Eberswalde, in Eastern Germany, a city I visited and confirm is nothing like any part of England I ever saw. There a German rabbit breeder has produced the BIGGEST DAMN RABBIT IN THE UNIVERSE. His name is Robert. It's says in a BBC piece that he weighs 9.2 kilos, which is a bit more than 20 pounds. He looks like he eats 20 pounds for snacks.
