Barack Obama makes sense on Trayvon. Graphic warnings on cigarettes are coming to a store near you. The pope wore a black sombrero in Mexico. And Facebook attempts to corner the market on the word ‘book.’
We’ve Got Issues
This week, crazy celebrity arrests, Canadian students protest against tuition fees, and a journalist gets it – mostly – wrong when it comes to Apple products.
AIPAC gets Occupied by activists in Washington DC. Mitt Romney will probably win Super Tuesday – at least we hope so. Dover Air Base does terrible things with 9/11 remains. And Rush Limbaugh… there are no words.
An all-male Congressional panel debates birth control, women everywhere cringe. Oklahoma attempts to give rights to fetuses. Asexuals get a day in the sun. And research proves religion + politics = teen pregnancy.
Protesters take Moscow for a third month of rallies against Putin. Prop 8 is overturned in California. Russia and China veto a resolution on Syria at the Security Council. And the education gap between rich and poor is widening even more in the US.
The economy is up and the bonuses of Goldman Sachs execs are down. (Yippee!) Susan G Komen sells out women for right-wing money, but then changes its mind. And Facebook needs to make money, which we will all suffer for.
A new documentary may make Chinese artist/activist Ai Weiwei a household name. Protesters celebrate one year in Tahrir Square. Spotify ads really suck when you’re trying to dance. And Newt Gingrich also comes under fire for campaign finance.
The Internet blackout makes change in Washington. Stephen Colbert and Herman Cain sing together. Republican primaries are a waste of time and money. And Apple will soon control the minds of all American children.
Americans are more aware of class differences than ever before. India may have eradicated polio. U.S. soldiers further damage our image in the Muslim world. And Apple is evil.
Ron Paul, T Mobile, SOPA, and Pakistani airstrikes. The week in review.
