Goodbye, DP

So I really did change my homepage to the Guardian, and am I glad I did. A snigger of headlines from today's edition.

Not unexpected:

"Stockholm bombing: Iraqi group linked to Al Queda praises attack" Subhead: "Suicide bomber Taimour Abdulwahab al-Abdaly referred to as 'martyr' on Islamist website"

A dumb one, but a martyr nonetheless. Related, perhaps:

"Anti-Muslim US preacher Terry Jones could be banned from UK" Subhead: "Home secretary Theresa May under pressure to close borders to Florida pastor who threatened to burn Qur'an"

Not unexpected, except to the Met Office:

"Weather set to take Arctic turn as big freeze returns to Britain" Subhead: Forecasters say thaw is a brief spell of better weather before ice, wind and snow returns later this week across the country"

Totally expected, but insane:

"CancĂșn agreement rescues UN credibility but falls short of saving planet"

Shucks. Sub: "$100bn 'green climate fund' committed to help poor countries defend themselves against climate change - money likely to come from private sector"
