This is getting delicious


It's very hard to "leak" information that is public anyway.
Merriam-Webster will probably go with "disclosure" as #WordOfTheDay.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Last week, the German parliament took a vote on allowing same sex marriages.
Angela Merkel voted against the proposal.
All six muslim representatives (one of them a woman in Merkel's own party) voted for the proposal.

Re: Bombing at Ariana Grande concert in UK

I believe I heard earlier it was the 2nd largest arena in Europe so maybe the content of the music/audience demographic wasn't the primary concern https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_indoor_arenas_in_Europe That Sportpaleis number seems high to me (having been there a number of times)
