Reporters seem to have the same motto around the globe:
"To think before you write is like wiping your bottom before you take a dump".

They all deserve a good spanking. Oslo's main newspaper did an article on various martial arts and managed to write that "Aikido was more religious than other martial arts". How the hell are we supposed to recruit when people think we're a sectarian bunch of nutters?

Apart from that, I think the article gave a good impression of our favourite art.
