In reverse order of importance:
A Mormon Senator from Idaho who supposedly didn’t drink alcohol was arrested for driving drunk. Oops.
A New York City woman pushed a man in front of a subway train because she thought he looked like a Hindu or a Muslim and she hates them. Sigh.
A “Kenyan economics expert” pleaded with developed countries to “please just stop” sending aid because it’s counter-productive. Wow.
Russia banned all adoptions to the US in retaliation for minor US sanctions against corrupt Russian officials. Argh.
France’s 75% tax on the wealthy has been ruled unconstitutional because it doesn’t meet their country’s standards for “equality.” Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.
Egypt’s Islamist constitution, which contains a few too many references to “sharia,” was approved in spite of the concerns of Christians and secularists. Hmm.
The U.S. has still failed to reach a “deal” on the “fiscal cliff,” but Obama has dictated a slight pay raise for everyone in Congress. Woohoo!
India is in turmoil after a woman died after being gang-raped on a bus. It’s actually encouraging that the country has come far enough that such a tragedy has the capacity to cause national outrage that could lead to further necessary progress.
