Mixed news

Edward Said died yesterday of leukemia; he was 67.

Amina Lawal will not be subjected to the barbaric sentence handed out earlier by a Nigerian Sharia court. She’s free to go home now.


  1. Moment of silence for Said.

    HOORAY FOR Amina Lawal!

  2. Amina’s free? Thank the gods, big and small.

  3. Yes, it’s good news that Amina Lawal is free. There are, however, still two other people waiting to have their “death by stoning” sentences reconsidered.
