Obama at Navy Yard massacre memorial: Recent shootings 'ought to obsess us'

Lamenting “once more” a deadly mass shooting, President Barack Obama assured families of the Navy Yard massacre victims at a memorial service on Sunday there was “nothing routine about this tragedy, there’s nothing routine about your loss.”
The service was held at the Washington Marine Barracks, just blocks from where authorities say Aaron Alexis shot and killed 12 Navy Yard workers on Monday afternoon and injured eight others.
"I fear there's a creeping resignation that this is somehow the new normal," Obama said. "It ought to obsess us, it ought to lead to some sort of transformation."

2015: Political jobbers, war-mongers have seized Nigeria –Mark

Senate President, David Mark, said yesterday, that political jobbers and war-mongers have seized the Nigerian political space ahead of the 2015 general elections which is still two years away. The Senate President made the observation while welcoming Senators at Tuesday’s plenary after a seven-week recess.
Mark noted that the antics of those agitating for political office ahead of 2015 was to unduly overheat the polity, adding that beating the drums of war and making treasonable comments were well-worn antics that would not work.
“Distinguished colleagues, more than ever before, our countrymen and women are looking up to us for leadership, redemption and stability. The polity is assailed by political tremors, all on account of the 2015 elections. Here, in this chamber, we are first and foremost, Senators of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and though not impervious to the present centrifugal political pulls, we must put the interest of Nigeria above every other consideration.

Ibori had in February 2012 pleaded guilty to 10 counts of fraud and money-laundering worth £50m.
