Returning to our previous lookat Daypop's Wordbursts, it's interesting to see when a dominant theme appears, echoing across the words which emerge. Notice the linked stories implied by this morning's batch (repeated in order, sorted into groups of five for readbility):
marine, picket; uranium, niger; hamdi, yaser; combatants, detentions; wassef
pakistani; brownshirts; bremer; plurality; sperm
wwdc; fatty; lured; istanbul; medications
A snapshort of the war on terror, June 2004, US-centric? Even "fatty" refers to it.
