    Now THAT'S smurfed up! Most sane people figured this out 25 years ago, but finally the U.N. got the memo that Smurfs are up to no good and bombed their sorry blue butts: These subhuman creatures live in a patriarical society ruled by a quasi-religious dictator with a beard, they devalue the lone female in the town by forcing her to care for the children (a career-killing move for any upwardly mobile young woman), and they hate cats... and that really pissed off Laurence Simon. To top it off, they are somehow related to Belgium. Oh, wait. Now I'm getting...

    BRUSSELS -- UNICEF's first adult-only episode of "The Smurfs," in which the blue-skinned cartoon characters' village is annihilated by warplanes, has terrified young children. The short but chilling film is to be broadcast on national television this week as a campaign advertisement for a fundraising drive by the U.N. children's agency. The animation was approved by the family of the Smurfs' late creator, "Peyo." Belgian television viewers were given a preview of the 25-second film last week, when it was shown on the evening news. The reactions ranged from approval to shock and, in the case of small children who...

    Unicef bombs the Smurfs in fund-raising campaign for ex-child soldiersBy David Rennie in Brussels The people of Belgium have been left reeling by the first adult-only episode of the Smurfs, in which the blue-skinned cartoon characters' village is annihilated by warplanes. The short but chilling film is the work of Unicef, the United Nations Children's Fund, and is to be broadcast on national television next week as a campaign advertisement. The animation was approved by the family of the Smurfs' late creator, "Peyo". Belgian television viewers were given a preview of the 25-second film earlier this week, when it was...

    Here's a poser for you: you're trying to knock together a TV ad highlighting the effects of war on children. What's the plan? Well, you could go down the traditional route of earnest voice-over accompanying footage of said kids miserably awaiting a better life or, on the other hand, you could arm up a squadron of attack aircraft and go and raze a Smurf village to the ground. Let's face it, it's a toughie. Not for Unicef Belgium though, which earlier this week reduced an enchanted Smurf hamlet to smouldering rubble - much to the horror of some TV viewers...

    HELENA -- Libertarian Stan Jones of Bozeman said Tuesday he is strongly considering running for governor next year. "I'm going to do a little more exploring," he said. "Right now, all indications are that I will run. I need to see how much support I can get." He ran as a Libertarian candidate for governor in 2000, getting 2 percent of the vote, and as the party's standard-bearer for the U.S. Senate in 2002, polling 3 percent, despite spending very little money. Jones gained national attention as a U.S. Senate candidate in 2002 because his skin had turned blue-gray. Jones...
