Rift Repairing Underway
The G-20 summit began Thursday, with leaders looking to repair a rift after France and Germany threatened to withdraw their support unless tough new rules were agreed to regulate the world's financial markets.
See, I feel confident that it’ll go well, because President Obama is very good with these economic leaders. He is a very good speaker, of course, and a good speech writer. See, the problem with President Bush was when he went to the summit, any time anyone said G20, he’d go, “Bingo!”- Jay Leno

Turtle Hospital, examines the throat of a sick loggerhead sea turtle at the
hospital in Marathon, Florida, March 30, 2009. Ironically, the ill turtle swam
to the hospital's boat basin on its own and was rescued by staff. Butts said
that it was the first time in the 25-year history of the hospital that a turtle
has "tracked us down and showed up at our doorstep waiting to be admitted."
