  1. The articles about the Afghan schoolgirls and the anti-vaccination book are both great. The girls and young women are brave and it is wonderful to see that their families support them in their quest for education. Somehow someway we need to learn how to instill this in our children and families here in America. I don’t need to say anything about the book. That is just great.

  2. @Soresport: Punished? If your referring to the beat down he received in the street, he wasn’t “punished” he was a victim of an assault. The lottery winner was “punished” for his crimes when he went to jail years ago, and as far as we know has not been in anymore trouble.

  3. I love it when my home state makes the news. It’s always for something terrifying and hilarious, like sex offenders winning the lotto, or Sarah Palin. Sadly, the dude being beaten with a lead pipe sounds about right on par for some Alaskans… we have this weird thing called “Bush Justice” that seems to kick in every now and then.

    This story is a wonderful example to use when pointing out to people that there is no god, so… I guess it’s good for something.

  4. I am trying not to be too happy about the assault. He has caused pain and agony for at least 3 families- he should give the money to them-at least to compensate for probably how much therapy they had to spend on it.
