An eight year-old girl named Abbey living is Australia is very upset her uncles can not get married, and she decided to do something about it! She wrote the Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott every day for a week, asking him to change the law so her uncles could be married. And after a week of such devotion to the cause, PM Tony Abbot actually wrote her back!
This has got to be one of my favorite things I’ve seen all day. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in women’s underwear. It’s too bad the painting has been confiscated and is no longer on display! From Reuters:
The police service said it had taken paintings from the “Museum of Power” gallery – based in two rooms of a flat – late on Monday after receiving reports they were illegal.
Russia does have a “No insulting authorities” law, but I bet if they would have let it slide not nearly as many people would have seen this masterpiece! Putin and Medvedev, you two should hit the runway!

You never know where the ruffian hacker group ‘Anonymous’ will strike next, or for what purpose. Most recently Anonymous decided to fight for gay rights, hacking Ugandan Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi’s website, and releasing a fake apology letter. It reads in part, “We have got to expel the narrow mindedness from this country, and begin afresh, starting with a full and formal apology to all homosexuals living in Uganda today.”
The Information Department has banned shows featuring gay characters, Deputy Information, Communications and Culture Minister Datuk Maglin Dennis D’Cruz confirmed. He said the ban was effective immediately but would only start with state-owned TV and radio stations.
Now that St Petersburg is off the travel list, you have the great country of Denmark to replace it!
Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt announced in a press conference draft legislation will be submitted by the Danish government on Wednesday allowing same-sex couples to marry at City Hall and the Church of Denmark provided they find a willing priest.
“It will be up to each priest whether he or she will perform gay marriages, but the government gives all members of the church the right to get married in church, whether they want to marry a person of the opposite or same sex,” PM Thorning said in Tuesday’s conference.
