EU Values

European Union justice and interior ministers agreed Friday that new immigrants to the 25-nation bloc should be required to learn local languages, and to adhere to general "European values" that will guide them toward better integration.

European Values? Like this?

Other interesting tidbits today:

Missing link found?
A nearly 13 million-year-old ape discovered in Spain is the last probable common ancestor to all living humans and great apes, a research team says in Friday's issue of Science magazine.

A husband-and-wife team of fossil sleuths unearthed an animal with a body like an ape, fingers like a chimp and the upright posture of humans. The ancient ape bridges the gap between earlier, primitive animals and later, modern creatures.

Matchmaker Liable for Bad Marriage. In other news, Cupid Hangs up Bow and Arrow and Santa Sued for Giving Boring Toy.

UN staff to vote on no-confidence motion against Annan. They've got my vote! Seriously, though, I don't understand if a No-Confidence vote from the UN Staff can actually remove him from office. I think the General Assembly would have to do so, but this at least shows his unpopularity amongst those who work for him.

Kerry blames Osama. For stealing the election from him. Honestly, what does it say about the confidence the American people have in you when they entered the voting booth with national security on their mind, as you say, and chose your opponent? UPDATE: Best of the Web used the same headline for this story as me! It's not at all a big deal. They surely got the story from Drudge like me, and how many ways can you headline this story? It's just neat is all. And LGF uses the exact same headline! Squee!

Greeks say Alexander was NOT bi-sexual. Not that there's anything wrong with that...
