political issues aside,
when cruising news using http://news.google.ca, i occasion upon various
stories at http://www.haaretz.com
several times now, even though the google news URL is for www.haaretz.com,
i find myself redirected to some scammer website "your PC may be infected
with a virus, scan now?"
not just as a pop-up, but an actual full redirect of the news page.
doesn't seem to happen the second time i access the link from news.google.ca.
dunno if anyone here has contacts with haaretz.com, but this has the potential
to infect PCs.

- Lester Pearson in 1967, during a meeting between himself and
President Lyndon Johnson, whose Secret Service detail had taken over
Pearson's cottage retreat. At one point, a Johnson guard asked
Pearson, "Who are you and where are you going?"
