Putin announces split with wife

Vladimir Putin's nearly 30-year marriage has ended, the Russian president and his wife told state-run television in a joint interview.

"This was our joint decision. Our marriage is over," Putin told Russia 24, standing next to Lyudmila Putin, in an interview shown Thursday. "We almost don't see each other. We have different lives."

    @my troll of 5:24 p.m. Sir, I will monitor the threads much more cautiously. I have allowed you to slander my name, thinking you would stop. You have not, but this will end.
    I will not allow it to interfere with my job; meaning I cannot take time off to check every five minuets upon your childish behavior. As far as my living an alternstive life style, I do not find humor in that, nor would my wife, siblings, three children, and parents.
    Good day.

    The president of russia, mr. putin, broke up with his wife. They felt that their lives were too separated. All russian and u.s. flags will be at half stand tomorrow.
    Reporting live from moscow, rupert, c.nn.

    Todays date is June 11, 2013. This story was originally posted on June 7, 2013. Has there been no news for the last four days ? Has the world come to a complete stop ? Have we entered into a parallel life existence due to a crack in the space / time continuum ? Hello, Is there antbody out there ?

      I know, right?
      TJI has "jumped the shark." All they need is a guest appearance by Ted McGinley to make it official.

      Why do they just leave these stories up ? If they are attempting to dissuade people from posting, just shut the damn thing down and be done with it.

      And good morning banasy, how have you been doing my friend ?

      Hi, Rawr, my dearest man. I am well. I hope this post finds you just as well!
      Since TJI has become such a joke, perhaps you will regale us with a few?

      I think a rider with a lame horse with the pony express would deliver more currant news nationwide.

    Good morning@bobcat
    Breaking news:
    TJI is reported to be in critical condition suffering from breathing problems due to "Bloggers Opinions Syndrome".
    Prayers are requested.

      Good morninr saywhat

      It has been reported that TJI has been placed on life support in an attempt to keep it in exisistence until such a time as when they are able to infuse a staff that isn't as anally retentive and actuallly seem to care about journalism and the opinions of its readers.
      Until that time, I don't believe the skills of the best first responders could do anything to revive them.

      Good morning dazzle

      Good to see you my friend. I feel like the news abot the break down in talks between the Koreas ( now there is a real shocker ) would carry more weight than the continuous agony of seeing yhis one image.
