Top New Zealand scientist quits - didn't actually know the "Cool Runnings" guys. Or was an ex-Marine, apparently. Also, China's top UN diplomat apparently got good and plastered recently and then admitted that he didn't like Americans. Or his boss.
This whole government/diplomacy....thing.....is really still a work in progress isn't it? At least Australia HAS a government now more or less. Unlike the Netherlands which seems to be having a tough time of it.
