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."

    The Southern Baptist Convention continues to complain about the Boy Scouts. The SBC doesn't need the BSA: Baptists have the Royal Ambassadors, who can also learn to pitch tents. As a young Southern Baptist, I had wonderful times at many meetings and conventions from North Carolina to Mississippi. SBC, go your own way.

      The administration can keep a record of phone calls and emails for any given day but after nine months, it still can't find any record of what it did for eight hours during the Benghazi attack

    I think that divorces are terrible so I'm sorry to the both of them but the fact that it'll be a diplomatic friendship after the divorce is always good. So good luck to the both of them. While I am at it, good luck to you too reader.

    Hope & pray that you remain safe & comfortable, same for@banasy.
    Indeed these blogs here saw many whose contributions added dimensions and interesting facets to important issues & i learned from them. I have been lucking in cultivating friends like you@banasy@dazzle@bobcat@Pete and many others who got disheartened & left.

    Seriously? How did you post 2 times at the same time chrissy? I have a hard time getting 1 post up. As for Putin, who really cares? Rupert Murdoch would be a more interesting divorce and even that is a stretch for important news.
