Henny (what crisis?) Herald's normal stock in trade is not optimism, but the old girl shows signs of reverting to that dauntless silver-lining-watching attitude she must have imbibed in her distant childhood when Ms Pollyanna expressed the latest in the feminine approach to life.
This is Henny's Saturday front-page topper: BOMBER SORRY AUSTRALIANS DIED. It could have been written by the Indonesian tourist office. It was certainly formulated by senior Indonesian police.
The headline should have said: BOMBER SORRY MORE AMERICANS NOT KILLED.
You'd have to be living in cloud-cuckoo land to see it Henny's way. You won't find the header on her Website.
