It’s the kind of attitude that makes me want to donate to groups that really DO provide abortion services in developing countries.
I probably should care about Wikileaks, but everyone is talking about Julian Assange so much that I don’t want to hear about it anymore.

I’m also hearing about a Serbian dude who got so drunk while on vacation in Egypt that he jumped in the water and landed on a shark’s head. He’s in the news because, instead of getting eaten, he ended up killing the shark. File this under D for “Don’t try this at home, guys.”
