News Roundup

Supreme Court Justice Ginsberg has said she plans to stay on the Court as long as her health allows it.  From her lips to God's ear, as my grandmother used to say.  I'd like her to stay on until at least February of 2013 so the next president can appoint her successor.

The U.S. military is reporting that Iran is providing support to terrorist organizations in Iraq.  They also report that water is wet, it gets hot in the desert in July, and that the sun rose in the east this morning.  Are we actually paying for this hard charging intelligence work?

Venezuelan strongman and former street clown Hugo Chavez has admitted that a cancerous growth was removed from his body a few weeks ago in Havana.  No word yet on his overall condition and what kind of cancer it was.  We here at DaddyBear's Den wish Mr. Chavez a speedy recovery so he can return to his job of watching for the plane for Mr. Rourke.

Maria Shriver has filed for divorce from her husband Arnold Schwarzenegger after the Governator admitted fathering a child with one of the household staff.  I feel for Arnold.  I didn't mess around on my wife, but divorces suck no matter what.  Of course, he's got a lot more to lose than I did.  It's going to hurt a heck of a lot more to write a check for several million dollars to his ex than it did for me to write one for $143.50 to mine.  No word yet on whether Arnold will be moving into a small apartment or a condo, or when he will be hitting Bed Bath and Beyond to furnish it.

Meh- he'll probably have one of his gophers do it... :-)
