The week that was

A review of the week’s top stories.

“In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.”
– Albert Camus

American representation finally arrived in Paris following the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack. John Kerry showed up unfashionably late and tried to kiss and make-up with President Hollande, but it was a disastrous, awkward pass.

President Obama keeps vowing to veto the Keystone Pipeline XL project. He said all American voters care about is gas prices, and we should focus on “rebuilding roads and bridges around the country” instead. With a record 92,898,000 people out of the workforce, we obviously can’t do both.

Pope Francis said some confusing things this week in reaction to the Charlie Hebdo killings – that we “cannot make fun of faith.” The Islamists agree. So instead of making fun, they’ll be making war.

Some scientists are reporting that 2014 was the “hottest year on record.” Apparently, though, they’re “arguing over the significance of hundredths of a degree.” Might these science folk finally explain how much an “nth” is?

And a star is born. It’s in the form of Ruairi McSorley, whose name can only be pronounced properly by the holder of his accent.
