◙   The UN General Assembly voted today condemning the U.S. embargo on Cuba – even though the vote won’t change anything.  Even though Obama has said on a few occasions that he wanted to improve relations with Cuba, there hasn’t been any improvements.  Will there ever be??

 

◙   U.S. House of Representatives voted today on a massive $894 billion health-care reform bill but the cost to reform the horrible health care system could exceed $1 trillion.  The sad thing is only approximately 36 million people will be covered by the proposed government plan. 

 

◙   The Nobel Women’s Initiative have written a letter as a part of a peace campaign for the people of Tibet and those living in exile, like the Dalai Lama.  I’m all for it!!  In the words of John Lennon, give peace a chance.  Check it out here.

 

◙   In sports news, Cristiano Ronaldo will be sitting out of next week’s game versus AC Milan due to an ankle injury.  Let’s hope Milan whoops them again!!   The Yankees have tied the series 1-1 against the Phillies tonight, winning game 2.

As thousands of people have been awaiting around the world, “This Is It” is opening up in select theatres worldwide for a two-week run.  The film is showcasing and highlighting the late and great Michael Jackson as he preps for what would have been one of the most elaborate concerts he would have ever put on.  Some say it’s amazing and some have mixed feelngs about it.  I don’t know what people are expecting – the footage was gathered from his rehearsals.  But as it’s the last major piece of work MJ did before his sudden death, all of the hype makes sense.

Hmmm, I wonder who came up with this genius ‘weight loss’ idea?  It’s longer for men than it is for the women’s shake weight!  Wow, I can’t deal with this right now….LOL.

Wtf???

Why are mens’ costumes way funnier than those available for women?  If you’re a woman and you want to buy a costume, you can’t really avoid looking like a $2 hooker in an uber flammable outfit.  Ugh…
