810- NAME THAT TEDDY BEAR

TEACHER NAMES TEDDY BEAR MUHAMMAD, GETS JAIL TIME, DEPORTATION
And you thought you have it bad here. An unbelievable mind set in some strange and faraway places.
Talk about the dark ages especially for women, thank whoever you want to, but be glad you aren't there.
The Story:
KHARTOUM, Sudan — British teacher Gillian Gibbons has been convicted of inciting religious hatred for letting her pupils name a teddy bear Muhammad and sentenced to 15 days in prison and deportation from Sudan, one of her defense lawyers said Thursday. "It's a very fair verdict, she could have had six months and lashes and a fine, and she only got 15 days and deportation," said Robert Boulos of the Unity High School, confirming there would be no appeal. He noted that she would only spend 10 days in prison, having already served five.
The rest of the story
There's a lot of people right here in this blog-o-sphere, including my own self, who would have lost their heads by now if we were in Sudan. And we send them a lot of money too! Outrageous!
Have a nice day....

You have been a little light on the Shiite heads lately, Glenn. Hoping for a diplomatic resolution through global harmony and UN sanctions?

Love the Armadillo b'bque, Erdene had fun identifing the animal. I pointed her in the right direction, and when she was done with her research, told her about the finer points of dining on that particular southern delicacy. First; look for one in the early evening when the road is still hot. Second; steer for it and try to catch his jump while it is in the center of the grill. (It's a good thing they breed like crazy,(heh. I was going to say "like Catholics in Manila", but my mom might link over here one day, but I doubt she would make it very far), as they would be as in as much danger of extinction as the whales who do their after sex play just below the surface of the shipping lanes of the east coast. Any defense mechanism, which involves jumping up in the air when scared should not be practice by any rural animal) Lastly, If the roadway at dusk is still warm enough, and the manifold hot enough, there is no reason to crowd the side dishes off the grill. Sear it on the street and bake under the hood.

BSF, Been there done that haven't you? Did you know if you hit 'um with a shotgun they roll over then keep on running? We used to hunt then on a golf course for a bounty by the owner to keep them from digging up the greens. Early 1970's

You might be a redneck if your idea of picking up dinner on the way home, involves a deer crossing sign on the roadway.
