News - Summary

It was a quiet Sunday across the world and across the U.S. The only story of interest is the vote for sovereignty in Eastern Ukraine. Early reports are the nearly 90% of the votes are in favor of secession. There are also accusations of fraud. I think most of the people of Eastern Ukraine want to leave Ukraine and either be independent or be part of Russia. So what will Ukraine do about it? What will Russia do about it? The U.S. will not do much more than sanctions about it. The E.U. is also not inclined to do much about it. Hopefully this all resolves itself peacefully but I would not be surprised if there is more bloodshed to come. Besides the normal amount of murder, mayhem, corruption, triviality, and tragedy, it was another day in the calm before the storm.

What do you think?
