This week we presented a serious, dare I say harsh, examination of why Newt Gingrich won't quit the presidential race (I think I spelled elephantine egomaniac correctly). We then took a slightly less critical, dare I say humorous, look at the top 5 signs that George W. Bush is planning to endorse Romney for president. We had some fun with European politics, exploring politician Dominique Strauss-Kahn's less-than-convincing denial of involvement in a French prostitution ring.
Away from presidential politics, the killing of Trayvon Martin dominated headlines. Believing there were already too many partially-informed opinions being expressed about the Martin case, I have stayed away from the topic. That changed this week when I felt compelled to weigh in on filmmaker Spike Lee's potentially catastrophic Twitter blunder.
Two personal passions, books and tennis, were well-represented this week. We saw a clever 2-minute video that artfully showed how physical books are born - the old-fashioned way, with the help of glue and human hands, and we received an update from Paul Gagne on the finale of the Tournament of Books. As for tennis, world #1 Novak Djokovic was featured on 60 Minutes, and we shared a behind-the-scenes clip of Novak serving up aces to journalist Bob Simon.
Of course we also offered the just-plain-silly for your entertainment. Anglophiles will absolutely love this Downton Arby's spoof, and for animal lovers, it doesn't get any better than this video of an angry goose striking back.
As always, thanks for reading!
