This has been a jam-packed news week. Just in case you missed them, here are some of the lead stories:
- North Korea tested a nuclear bomb at an underground facility and also test fired a bunch of short range missiles. (more)
- Iran sent 6 warships into international waters. They said it was to protect their sea vessels against pirates. (more)
- The California Supreme Court upheld the ban on gay marriage, but then said all gay marriages that occurred before Prop 8 will remain valid. (more)
- President Obama nominated Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court. She would be the first Hispanic and third ever woman Justice. (more)
That is an incredible news week in my book. Bombs going off. Battleships in hostile territory. Supreme Court indecision decision. Minority nominated for US Supreme Court. What an incredible news week!

In the midst of all of that world news, I just wanted to make sure you didn’t miss Mr. T throwing a baseball and singing the beloved 7th inning stretch classic. Harry Caray would be proud. Yep. He would.
