A few news items that caught my eye today:
Miss Belgium was booed for being unable to speak Flemish. You might think that response is a bit harsh. I mean, she's just a beauty queen. But you have to realize that because Belgium technically doesn't have a government, Miss Belgium is next in line to rule the country. (The order goes: King, Prime Minister, Vice Prime Minister, Belgium's B-Celebrities, France.)
Two new species of mammals were discovered in Papua: a pygmy possum and a giant rat. Is it just me, or are these two different names for the same thing?
Why can't our female politicians be more like Yulia Tymoshenko? And by that, I mean, really effin hot.
