Did I Miss Something? Another

Did I Miss Something?

Another story from Reuters (Motto: "One Man's Internet News Source Is Another Man's Painful Urination"), this time on reward money for the barbarians who kidnapped and murdered Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl.

Washington is offering $5 million for their capture, more than enough money to turn heads in Karachi.

Interesting, I suppose. But what I'd really like to know is how well is the WSJ planning on taking care of Pearl's widow, Mariane?

Anyone have any info on this at all?

UPDATE: Juan Gato alerted me to the following from today's Best of the Web:

Editor's Note

Dow Jones & Co. has established a fund for the benefit of murdered reporter Daniel Pearl's widow, Mariane Pearl, and their son, with an initial contribution of $100,000. Please note that contributions are not tax-deductible. If you'd like to donate, you can send a check to:

The Daniel Pearl Memorial Trust

c/o Robert J. Laughlin, Vice President

J.P. Morgan Trust Company of Delaware

500 Stanton Christiana Road - 2/CS

Newark, DE 19713

I urge all of you who are able to do so to make at least a small contribution. Thank you.
