Icelanders get cold comfort in a world first

Well at least something good has come of the economic meltdown and consequent political shake-up in Iceland: the world's first (out) lesbian head of state. Johanna Sigurdardottir will be the nation's interim prime minister, following this week's collapse of the government there (though her term will likely be shortlived). For the sake of her country's troubled economy as much as for the milestone she sets, we should all wish her the best of luck.
