We finally had access to a TV with CNN, so I turned it on for a couple of hours to catch up. This is what I discovered:
Chinese citizens are outraged because Google finally decided to stop censoring their content.
A large group of women in Yemen gathered to protest a ban on child brides, arguing that marrying as young as 8 years old is a religious right.
Some American Congressmen are receiving violent messages, and even death threats, because they helped to pass universal health care. Evidently, according to opponents of the legislation, expanded coverage will bring on Armageddon.
I really feel like I missed something.
