OMG ... what next?


As if it's not enough that the new captain of the world is a Black Man (Jan 20, 2009), but Iceland has just named a white lesbian as its new Prime Minister (Feb 1, 2009). I'm not even going to try to pronounce her name, Johanna Sigurdardottir. And I do look forward to the Poles inviting her to dinner ... not that anyone would want to eat Polish food. As this Sigurdardottir article from the BBC points out, Eastern Europe still has a long way to go in at least achieving a 20th century attitude to gay rights.
