Woman Turns 115: Honored by Journalist Bashing U.S.

You've seen reports where a journalist makes some off-handed, totally unrelated remark on an issue just for the chance to jab a finger in the eye of a conservative or the U.S. Well, this one that I found via LGF is just great! Bias? What bias? Not us!

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - A Dutch woman who swears by a daily helping of herring for a healthy life celebrated her 115th birthday on Wednesday as the oldest living person on record. Hendrikje van Andel-Schipper, a former needlework teacher, was born in 1890, the year Sioux Indians were massacred by the U.S. military at the Battle of Wounded Knee.

Give me a break. Oh, that reminds me of a story about a lottery winner with the numbers 1619, which happened to be the year that the Dutch brought the first African slaves to British North America....
