You assholes! The way to resolve a hostage crisis is not to lob nerve gas into room full of 700-800 civilians! Just when you thought Russia was taking steps towards stability, they go and pull a cold-war stunt like this. Jesus Christ. But the story gets worse:
Information on the type of gas used has been withheld from doctors treating the hostages, hindering their ability to treat the patients with an antidote, they say.
Well done! Because hitting them with deadly chemical weapons isn't nearly enough. No, you have to let the civilians suffer preventable deaths. That's the way to get the public on your side. Putin, what are you thinking?

Meanwhile, Phoenix is the best browser in the world, ever. Free, best interface, least bloated, most stable, and the rendering engine is gecko, so it has the best support for web standards. This is not a geek's web browser; this is just a great piece of software, period. It also has lovely little touches: if you type a phrase into the location bar, it automatically Google searches for that phrase.
Update 2002.10.29: Okay, so it wasn't nerve gas. It still killed 115 people.
