Our Fallen sister Bhutto

It came as no shock to to most of you out there that they finally succeeded in attempts to assassinate Benazir Bhutto.

What I admired most about reading about her was probably her stubbornness and bravado. Two qualities that obviously don't take women too far in a moslem world.

I recall listening to her sister in law on NPR a few months or so ago and I think they said she is also running for some position in government once/ if the elections come around. The reporter asked her if she was scared and her response was something in the lines of..."i am not controversial, so i have nothing to fear of the Islamist millitants." From her tone, I got a feeling of foreboding with regards to Bhutto. Like it was only a matter of time.

I would not be surprised if Musharaff declares that elections will be postponed indefinitely because of this. You know....for the safety of the others...(snort)

Any way... there's a saying in Africa 'when the lion drinks, the gazelle must go thirsty.' It fits perfectly in this instance.

MHSRIP...and may another sister pick her baton up. Watch them declare a jihad on me for that last little!
