The Holiday Shattered As Terror Resumes

Sadly the news is now awash with reports of the assassination of former Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto in Rawalpindi earlier today.  I myself know little about her, but expect I will learn more in the days to come.  I do know she was the first elected woman to lead a Muslim state.  The fact that Paskistan is a nuclear country makes this a very dangerous situation.  The really bad news is that while it happens days before a parliamentary election in that country, it will have major reprecussions on the national election in the United States.  I finally had to turn the TV off when it appeared the commentary moved from the horrible news of the day to the huge pre-election spin machine of the U.S. regarding what we might see or hear from candidates who want to "guard against looking anything but presidential".  GOOD GRIEF!
