So, first of all, I am terribly sorry I haven't blogged in so long. School got in the way through most of May, and then I had company, and then I needed a break, and then family troubles popped up. I'm surprised I'm even being able to make time for this post.
However, I will say, I've been writing throughout most of this time, and I have started multiple blog posts that just haven't come to fruition.
The title of this blog post has a double meaning, however. In case you've missed some interesting events in the news, I'm going to recap them for you. I know of many people who pay less attention to current events for whatever reason during the summer.
The top four most interesting things to have happened in the news this month in my opinion, are:
1. John McCain, a highly respected Senate Republican, had a brain tumor removed recently. Whether you agree with his politics or not, he is a tough man, and I hope he's tough enough to battle through brain cancer.
2. OJ Simpson was granted parole today. His release is scheduled for October.
3. The Revised Senate Health Care bill was on delayed vote, because of McCain's surgery, however, two more senators have since come out saying they would not support the bill, meaning it would fall short of a majority to pass through.
4. An Australian bride-to-be was fatally shot by a police officer while she was on vacation in Minneapolis under mysterious circumstances. This is still under investigation.
