Bizarre Editing Choice Of The Month At The LA Times!,0,6683877.story?page=2&coll=la-home-headlines

In the above article, the LA Times describes the destruction from the earthquake that hit Pakistan and India. The LA Times then lists the agencies looking for donations to help the victims of the quake . This quote is at the end of the story just before the plea from the LA Times to give money to these people:

"You are Christian or Jew?" he inquired, shouting to be heard over the Russian rescue crew's jackhammer. "We like Christians," he said, and his smile turned to a scowl, "more than Jews."

Now I'm not saying that what this man said is not newsworthy - but to use his statements as the lead into the list of agencies accepting money to help people like him... is, well - something that could only happen in the LA Times.
