Your Monday Morning News Update

Posted By on Mon, Jul 10, 2006 at 8:13 AM

It's a new week! Yay! Or boo! Or something! Here's what's going on:

-- A building exploded in New York this morning—a gas problem is suspected—injuring at least five people.

-- Japan is sick of Kim Jong Il's snit.

-- In what HAS to be a first, a company (in this case, the Boston Globe) is FORCING gay and lesbian employees to get married in order to keep their domestic-partner benefits. Of course, they're in a state where they CAN get married, whereas in Arizona, the whackadoos don't want gays or straights or ANYBODY to even have domestic partner benefits. Sigh.

-- Meanwhile, Arizonans—baffled by this recent phenomenon called "rain"—keep drowning.

And that's all that's going on in the world, at least for now.
