So Sad!

I have two thoughts about this break-up:

1. I am truly very, very sad about this. They have four kids, and they seemed like such a great couple. Different backgrounds, yes, but they both seemed grounded and real. When I heard the news, I almost started crying I was so upset- for them as well as their children. I guess it just goes to show that even seemingly great marriages still have problems.

2. Republicans can get off their high horse about thinking they are so morally superior to Democrats- they have officially lost their self-righteous and self-given title of "moral gods and goddesses" of America. Granted, they lost it a  long time ago, but now they can really shut up about having higher standards than everybody else, because they don't.

Whew, felt good to get that off my chest!

CNN Presents- A Shout Out

Last night my husband and I watched CNN Presents: The Hunt For Bin Laden (I'm not sure if that is the exact title, but it is something like that). If you have CNN, you should definitely watch this!

This special feature goes into detail of what occurred for the preparation and the mission of getting Bin Laden. It is fascinating- and caused me to have a much greater appreciation for our intelligence community (dang, they are smart people!) and for what our special opps forces can accomplish (real life is WAY better than the movies!).

It is a great piece of journalism- I'm sure you will not be disappointed! Definitely a 5 star piece!
