In other news, sky still blue

A U.N. task force has found evidence of corruption that may have cost the institution upwards of $610 million. Shocking stuff indeed.

"U.N. officials privately acknowledge that some malfeasance is inevitable in an organization that processes 12,000 purchase orders in the field each year and buys enough energy to power a city larger than Washington, D.C."

That's the spirit! If you don't even try to be accountable, you can't be considered a failure. And that's a valuable take home lesson for all the member states.

(I know, I'm a horrible blogger and I'm not even going to apologize for the lack of posts.. as my mother always taught me, sorry means you won't do it again. I did however miss my baby's third birthday which is inexcusable... Happy Belated Birthday Bitter Lemon!)

This Land Is My Land, This Land is Your Land from Heart Lake to The City Centre...

This may just be the saddest headline I've read in a long time.
