March for democracy in Bahrain

More evidence that President George W. Bush was right to liberate Iraq in part, to encourage the march of freedom in the most repressed part of the globe.

Tens of thousands have marched in one of Bahrain's largest opposition demonstrations to demand democratic reforms in the pro-Western Gulf Arab state.
Friday's peaceful march, called by the Shi'ite-led opposition, follows unsuccessful talks with the government on constitutional reforms to give greater powers to parliament's elected assembly, which is on an equal footing with a state-appointed chamber.


It's actually dizzying, the stampede for freedoms in the greater Middle East.

    FYI. Your former bandmate wrote an OpEd piece on ANWR in the StarTribune on Saturday. Too bad Engebretson can't multiply numbers.

    Ha ha. Funny you'd noticed that. I stopped in at Dixies Calhoun on the lake during my Saturday walk and found that letter while at the bar. I pointed it out to Lori Barbaro, who works there.
    hehe...
