M68!: Morning News Wrap. From around the Globe to your Frontal Lobe. Good Morning. Here is the news:-
So turns out the lady who ‘fell overboard’ from that cruise ship, intentionally jumped to commit suicide. I know I upset a few people the other day speculating that it may have been the husband….this was me just looking at the facts of the story and concluding that there was more to the story than a woman who was throwing up, being swept over board by a 40 metre wave. I feel immense sadness for the husband, who actually tried to stop her, and her three teen children.
The Commonwealth Games have officially closed. The Ceremony has been slammed as the broadcast did not include the athletes marching into the Stadium. By the end of the ceremony….there were almost no people left in the stadium as people had simple walked out. Peter Beattie has hit the media saying that they got it wrong. Disappointing. Some people are likening the Ceremony to an embarrassing Australian Idol Reunion with has been artists singing sexually provocative songs from the 80’s and 90’s.

India is outraged over the gang rape and murder of an 8 year old girl…..There have been protests and politicians calling for new laws…..Yawn….sorry but did they do all this over the rape and murder of a 7 year old girl 2 months ago. Reality is that India does not value women and the mistreatment of them is not punished in any meaningful way…..This is a nation where dowry killings claims the lives of thousands of young women…..So rather than protests and empty political gestures they need to start to change culture…Otherwise they will be doing all this again, sadly in a month’s time.
