So, a lot more news recently. Hollande won the election, and hopes to pull France out of the financial whirlpool threatening the EU. US President Barack Obama has come out in favour of gay marriage - personally I don't agree with gay marriage. 'Marriage' is a christian term, and does not blanket the entire worlds meaning for 'union'. Gays and lesbians deserve the same rights, but not the same name. Marriage is christian - and christians don't believe in same sex relationships. It's important to protect both peoples rights in this argument.
Vladimir 'Bear-slayer' Putin has turned down his expected appearance at the G8 summit - instead sending the previous President Dmitri. He was his successor and predecessor. How strange.
Greece is trying another government - the third time so far since the crisis of their economy. Meanwhile the olympic torch is set to be lit there - who's paying the gas bill?
