New story

This is the kind of story I came here to write. I had to fight like heck to get it though. When they got this report, our bureau actually threw it away! They passed it to me on a slow day, and I loved and took off with it. Now it's running across the wire, with particular popularity in Asia.
Basically, the UN came out with a report that half of the world's population will be living in cities next year for the first time in history. I got to meet with the UN undersecretary who commissioned and oversaw the report. It was amazing, we sat in this very posh, exlusive club drinking very expensive tea giggling over idiots trying to cut comprehensive sexuality education funding. Men is suits glared at us over thier Blackberries.,8599,1637734,00.html
