Re: OT - who owns whom

Just yesterday I found 30 minutes of bbc world news broadcast by one of
the PBS stations here. Even watched it for a bit. Amazing to find there
is a world out there! They only had 20 seconds on Michael Jackson's
trial, and several minutes on the proliferation of very large dams in
China. It was nice to see some different topics. I was interested to see
a piece, although not "new" news, on the planned relocation of 2.2
million Ethiopians (I didn't realize the total number was that large).
The soil on their farms (from 2 acres down to 1/4 acre) up in the hills
has become depleted, and even when the rains come they can no longer
grow enough food. So the government is relocating them to new land
(relocation is voluntary, but it's really move or starve). The person
the BBC was profiling was very pleased with his new land.

HSBC is behind a huge number of sponsored cards. They were also last in
line owning our mortgage (another common buying/selling/consolidation I
could nicely live without). Can't seem to follow instructions on paying
