Reuters has a human interest story about the world's oldest person. She is a Dutch woman who just celebrated her 115th birthday. Of course, Reuters can't help itself from throwing in a gratuitous anti-American comment:
Hendrikje van Andel-Schipper, a former needlework teacher, was born in 1890, the year Sioux Indians were massacred by the U.S. military at the Battle of Wounded Knee.
