Selena Sermeno on letting your heart break in light of shooting.

At least 25 people were killed in the latest Syrian government bombing of a Palestinian refugee camp in Damascus. In Iraq, at least 20 people were killed in f car bombings outside Shiite temples. In Kabul, ten girls were killed when an old bomb went off and one person was killed by a car bomb.

It looks like John Kerry, and not Susan Rice, will be named as Secretary of State. Good job on the smear campaign, Republicans.

    I agree that John McCain and Lindsay Graham were unfairly blaming Susan Rice for the Benghazi tragedy (the CIA, Charlene Lamb of the State Department, the Libyan government and the interventionist foreign policy are more to blame), I think there is abundant evidence that she would have been a terrible nomination for SoS.

    She’s also an uber-hawk (which makes John McCain’s objections to her all the more puzzling), while Senator Kerry has been calling for an increasingly restrained approach (i.e. early withdrawal from Afghanistan, diplomacy over sanctions with Iran, etc.)

    I am having a hard time believing the positive wage gap countries include no Nordics… when you said “guess where” I thought that was a playful tone it was going to be Iceland, Denmark, etc; those countries lead the world distantly when it comes to gender equality.
