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."

    anyone who drops a bomb can and does think of any number of reasons to justify the act, thats why bombs are dropped. @bobcat had articulated this very aptly on another thread.

    Harry Truman's personal diary and what he addressed to his daughter gives clue to his very apparent sense of regret despite his efforts to justify it to himself.

    Reading Truman's personal diary and what he addressed to his daughter gives a clue to his very apparent sense of regret despite his obvious efforts to seek justification for himself. He had initially thought that the bomb was dropped on a military installation.

    if you read excerpts from Truman's personal diary & what he addressed to his daughter, his sense of regret comes across strongly.

    That's right saywhat. We are spread too thin as it is and there is no need. What if we unknowingly arm the wrong people and they turn against us. Let's learn from history Washington.

    This must be the gossip blog of the day and who cares that they split. Leave it to CNN not to update the blogs with yet another shooting in Santa Monica.

    No mention of the carnage on streets of Santa Monica, 7 killed?
    "3 Americans killed in Afghanistan"
    "46th Anniversary of Israel attack on USS Liberty".

    An old man goes to the Wizard to ask him if he can remove a curse he has been living with for the last 40 years. The Wizard says, "Maybe, but you will have to tell me the exact words that were used to put the curse on you." The old man says without hesitation, "I now pronounce you man and wife."
