Ban Ki-Moon was reelected to his post as Secretary General of the United Nations.
This is such an important event that I found out about it via Wikipedia, as no other news source found it worth making a big deal about. This may have something to do with the fact that the United Nations is effectively an ineffective joke at this point. Ban's first target is climate change; not terrorism, not collapsing economies, not rising food prices, not energy, not drug wars, but an unproven theory with "remedies" usually requiring massive economic hits on developed nations.
I can't imagine why the United Nations isn't a more powerful moral force in this world.
