AMAZINGLY, THE NEWS IS GOOD
“KAMPALA (Reuters) - A Ugandan bill that mandated the death penalty for gays who are "repeat offenders" appeared to have been shelved again on Friday when it was not debated in parliament after provoking an international outcry. Parliament speaker Edward Ssekandi dissolved the house on Friday and said there was not enough time to debate the bill. A new parliament is to be sworn in on Wednesday. "I think we expected that this would happen," an lawmaker who did not want to be named, told Reuters. "The pressure had been too much over the last two years. It had to disappear."
And the odious (but not actually hell-spawned) Donald Trump will not be running for President.
“Donald Trump has confirmed today he will not run for President in the 2012 election. The announcement comes one week after he fell from first placed candidate to tied fifth place among Republicans in a survey by the Public Policy Polling organisation. The 64-year-old real estate mogul kept America guessing for months over whether he would run for the 2012 Republican nomination, among intense media speculation. His statement was made as NBC unveiled its new primetime schedule to advertisers, which has intensified speculation that his whole campaign was a big publicity stunt.” (Image from MrMR)
