This was a week of bonds gained and lost. President Obama voiced his support for gay marriage earlier this week, sparking inspiration and controversy across the nation, the passing of Beastie Boy Adam Yauch saddened music fans across the globe, and the election of Vladimir Putin rekindled an old flame that many wished had stay extinguished. Meanwhile, many Sixers took the approaching Mother’s Day to pen memoirs about the oldest, often best and most complex bond we have: mom.
