An observation

Benazir Bhutto's assassination and turmoil in Pakistan is going to have a huge effect on the world. That includes us, in the United States.

But I bet if you asked the average person on the street what's going on in that country, who Benazir Bhutto is, the role Pakistan plays in the "war on terror", Pakistan's relationship with India and Afghanistan, and so on -- you would get blank stares.

That's just sad. If you don't know why Pakistan matters to you, I recommend reading up. The Economist is a great place to start. Check it out.

Our friend Severo, summed up the loss very eloquently on his blog.

I find it kind of insane how many times the cause of her death has changed in the last 24 hours.

You know what's funny Loree, I think if we were in the newsroom, Adam Mathis would make an argument for why it's not necessarily a completely bad thing that a Muslim woman was killed. She obviously worshiped a false god and being a female, she shouldn't have been at the forefront of a political movement anyway.

i miss adam :(
