Surprise

I love being surprise when I read an article, watch a movie, enjoy a book or catch a short news feed. When my expectations are toyed with and someone does the unexpected, I find it most entertaining – or even more, enlightening.

Kevin Rudd

Australia's prime minister, Kevin Rudd, is a devout Christian. Recently he addressed a gathering of constituents and was attacked for his "evolving stand" on homosexuality and same sex marriage. What he does in this short clip is certainly not what I expected – and I think it’s worth the few minutes to see the PM tackle tough questioning from a Christian pastor, Matt Prator. PM Rudd walks through the land-mined filled battlefield of this bible-quoting radio host, turning the tables and then steamrolls right over him on his way to the promised land.

Video- So, Margaret Thatcher Has Died...

I will be smiling all day today, not because she has died, but because someone on "Morning Joe" described her as "universally loved". Nothing like a good guffaw to get your day started. Obit here.
