I have no quotes and I’ve purposely avoided the news since my vacation began so I am not up to speed on much of this. That said, thank you for the quote from that brave woman and thank you for being you. Happy Sunday Susie. Happy New Year as well. I love you.
I have been observing the tragedies that have come to her family for almost thirty years. When she returned to Pakistan, I feared she would be assassinated—even after the assignation attempt on the day she arrived failed. My gut feeling tells me that the Taliban is not responsible for her death; if I were investigating her assassination, I would begin with the Musharraf régime.
squirl, yes. Thank you for calling to mind the power of words. Ideas without words . . . we’d never know of them, except our own.
operagal, you, too. I shall try to keep it, every time I get my hands (heart, mind) on it.
traci, I love you, too. And I wish you a wonderful New Year.
bone, I’ve seen (a little bit) of your brain. It’s so not bad. I wish you a steel-belted radialish, blimpy New Year 🙂
donnajo, not entirely sure I deserve it, but I sure do want it. Thank you for being out there for me.
ck, hey, that’s better than strep, which I think LG picked up.
karen, I’ll look forward to it. The theory, that is. The New Year, I gotta say, I’m a little suspicious of, given recent history. I hope you and yours have a very good 2008.
nick and alex, I’m sure you know more about her history. I remember many years ago, reading about her in Time, and thinking how beautiful she was. More recently, I, like you, thought she would be killed soon. And like you, I would begin an investigation at the top. And I told him as much to his face, on my TV screen.
