          Highlights in the news from this week:

          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/June_2007


          In Britain, flooding; Gordon Brown replaces Tony Blair as Prime
          Minister; a car-bomb attack at the Glasgow airport.

          In the US, more floods (in central Texas); the CIA releases documents
          confirming reports of decades worth of dirty doings; the Supreme Court
          bars ordinary citizens from challenging the Bush faith-based charity
          initiative, limits student freedom of expression and the ability of
          school districts to desegregate schools; Barrington Irving completes
          his solo flight around the world.

          In Australia, still more flooding.

          In Colombia, a number of politicians who have been taken hostage are
          murdered by their captors.

          In Ivory Coast, an attempt on the life of Prime Minister Guillaume
          Soro results in three deaths (not including Soro's).

          Scientists find possible 1-million-year-old human fossils in Spain and
          clone bacteria, taking a big step toward the creation of synthetic life.
