Sunday News

I got to peruse the news headlines this morning, since my girl Rosie is getting over (Thank You Lord!) the flu and we stayed home from church.

Thought I'd share a few of the highlights with ya'll:

Our Leaders are in Carbon-Cloud Cuckoo Land.
- on why the G8 summit was a complete waste of time, not to mention crazy

French village snubs the Euro
- they're still using the franc and becoming a tourist destination - hooray for independence!

Iraqi govt. handing out cash
- what a super way to fix your country! No worries about corruption at all!

A very interesting article on a guy from Iran who escaped to the US after being in Iranian prison (and all that entails) for many years. The coolest part is when he said he'd go back to Iran to fight for his country if the US attacked.

High cost of oil increases online classes.
Why drive to classes when you can save $$ by doing them at home?

ACLU files lawsuit challenging FISA
If you care whether the govt. monitors your online activities.....

Apes granted human rights in Spain.
Because rights come from governments - right?

Generally I don't read or listen to the news. Death and destruction. Death and destruction. That's about all there is. ARG and I joke in the car when the NPR news highlights come on - how many people died? where? and how? and which govt. is "looking into it"?

It would be funny, if it wasn't so sad.
