Sorry for the Labor Day delay. In reverse order of importance:
Thousands of women gave birth to babies. One of those women was named Snooki.
Scientists finished a 25-year-long study of dieting monkeys, concluding that fewer calories don’t help them live longer. This contradicted an earlier questionable study. Or something.
Hurricane Isaac hit Louisiana and Mississippi but didn’t do too much damage besides a fair amount of flooding.
The GOP held their national convention, where the establishment changed some rules and ignored objections in a way that basically said “F-U” to the grassroots. They had some women and minority speakers, which was weird because everyone knows Republicans hate women and minorities. Clint Eastwood ad libbed as a surprise guest. For the next five days cable news discussed what kind of a poll bounce Romney was getting.
Meanwhile, Congress questioned the Department of Homeland Security about its strange obsession with seizing websites the RIAA doesn’t like and quietly giving them back without charges.
The Obama Administration sent two hundred Marines to Guatemala, because nothing says “Defending our Freedoms” like trying to stop foreign gangs from selling things we’re not allowed to use.
Iran said they’ve doubled their secret underground centrifuges for refining uranium. No one really knows if they’re actually closer to getting The Bomb or what Israel/US will do to stop them besides hacking their computers.
The Euro crisis staggered on. No big news about debts, but the Eurozone reached record unemployment.
Violence continued in Syria, where they say over 2,000 people were killed last month. Still not sure if the rebels or the regime are making progress.
