The Onion captures the essence of the mega-bucks lobbyist for the recording industry.

EURO-ANTI-SEMITISM WATCH: The wife of the European Central Bank president has started a group dedicated to ending the “occupation” of Palestine. She’s organizing a petition on those grounds. Michiel Visser has the details:

Ha ha ha. So sophisticated these Europeans, no?
