History being made

Several notable events happened this past week.

First and foremost, ex-president Gerald Ford passed away last Tuesday at the age of 93. He's the first president I can remember seeing on tv when I was little. And, sadly, it wasn't until recently that I learned that he is/was the only person to hold the office of vice-president & president in US history that wasn't elected into either office. Apparently Nixon named him as his successor when he resigned. He was also the oldest living ex-president, after Reagan.

Also making news...

Saddam Hussein was executed last night around 10pm EST. Man alive, I realize I don't follow politics that much, but if ever there was someone that deserved what he got, then it was that ex-dictator.

On a much lighter note, if you ever want to laugh like crazy when playing a video game, I strongly urge you to try Wii's Rayman - Raving Rabbids. What a corny game! The whole game is pretty much made up of smaller mini-games. I always thought rabbits were cute, cuddly creatures. Not these suckers. LOL

Anyone else get the chance to play a game on the Wii yet?
