While 80% of our readers hail from the States, I want to enlighten them on the biggest issue facing the world this week.

Ben Bernanke acting like a reckless drunken sailor? No.

Brad potentially cheating on Angelina? No.

Sarah Palin v Katie Couric v2.0? No.

US healthcare reform debate? No.

Stop being so US centric - there are larger issues facing the globe!

If you really want to impress your European, or in fact friends in any other parts of the world simply say The Irish were robbed! (and no, I don't mean the Notre Dame Irish)

In a global travesty, in a match to qualify for the World Cup 2010 in South Africa - Ireland and France played a pivotal qualifier game ... a win or stay home and try again in 4 years type of affair.  In football soccer one cannot use their hands, unless one is a goalkeeper.

Or can they?
