We hope you’re having a great day wherever you are and that the news we dig up for you this morning helps you navigate the day more efficiently!
It’s a busy world out there, and you don’t have a ton of free time to be doing Internet searches for the most important items of the day… lucky for you, we do. We drink gallons of coffee in an effort to stay awake long enough to scour the far reaches of the world wide web in an effort to bring you the most important, useful and useless information every single day.
So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Monday September 23, 2013.

We know that they now rest easy in the arms of our Lord, and that the perpetrators of this gruesome and heinous attack will receive His judgment.
In Germany the conservative Christian Democratic Union won its most sweeping victory in years. Crushing the opposition and setting up Chancellor Angela Merkel as the most powerful woman in the world.

Liberal icon George Soros is getting married, again. This wedding may just be the political event of the year, promising to draw the biggest names in politics and power.
