I was on vacation, hence the lag.

This headline caught my attention: "Activist kills self at WTO protest in Cancun". According to the article from Reuters:

Reporters saw the man climb up onto a high security fence and wave a banner that read "WTO Kills Farmers." He then stabbed himself in the chest.

If this isn't the ultimate in stupidity, I don't know what is. Unless, of course, the man suffered from multiple personality syndrome, with one half of his psyche inhabited by an evil soul named "W.T.O.", and the other half by a hapless dude known as "Farmers". If that was the case, the banner was quite prescient, to be sure.
