Good Grief, eh?
Benazir Bhutto shot in the neck and dead dead dead. Then the shooter blew himself (of course it was him, and doubtless an observant Muslim boy he was too) up and killed a bunch of nearby folks, Muslims all, natch.
Hitchens has tapped out a quick and good piece about Benazir. Seems she might have been a Taliban fan once upon a time.
Prolly the psychos who did this, with a bit of Al Qaeda craazyhelp as well. What's that ancient latin maxim? "Lie down with dogs, get up with rabies" or some such.
Yeah, it is rabies. in this case at least.
Not a good way to be getting to the end of this 2007.
