Germany 4 England 1.
The World Cup has ended for us. Please don't mention this for another 4 years or so.

Word reaches us this early Monday morning that Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia has passed away. The senator was 92 and holds the record for the longest serving member of congress at 57 years.
