Lost Last Month

May 2011

Osama bin Laden! The definition of a saint, after Pope John Paul II is beatified by Pope Benedict XVI. Having a busy month, Pope Benedict XVI also removes an Australian bishop for allegedly advocating the ordination of women. Clause Choules, 110, the last known combat veteran from World War I. IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn's travel plans, when he is arrested at JFK Airport for alleged sexual assault. A wellspring of jokes, after Donald Trump announces he will not run for president in 2012. The Oprah Winfrey Show, after 25 seasons. Peace of mind for Louisiana residents, when the Morganza Spillway on the Mississippi River is opened for the first time in 37 years, flooding 3,000 square miles of rural Louisiana in an attempt to save Baton Rouge and New Orleans. Logic and more, in Sudan, after Ahmed Haroun, wanted by the International Criminal Court on charges of war crimes, is re-elected governor having already served as the country's Minister of State for Humanitarian Affairs. President Obama's month, starting off so strongly, but ending with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and Queen Elizabeth both publicly correcting him.
