August 2008

Lost Last Month

Georgia's sovereignty, after Russian forces invade South Ossetia. Already 2,000 people, mostly civilians, are thought dead. Some reassurance that we were long past a Cold War, as Russia threatens to retaliate with nuclear weapons when Poland agrees to deploy a missile defense shield. Pervez Musharraf's role as President of Pakistan, resigning under pressure of impeachment. The dream of home ownership for many Britons as UK home repossessions rise by 48 percent. Mark Spitz's 36-year-old Olympic swimming record, when phenom Michael Phelps wins his eighth straight gold medal in the a single Olympic game. The silliness of the National Enquirer, after breaking the story that John Edwards had an affair. Not with an alien. John Lennon murderer Mark David Chapman's fifth attempt at parole. World records left and right, every day of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.
