Everyone will have heard by now about hapless Gillion Gibbons, English school teacher subject to 40 lashes and six months in a Sudanese prison for allowing her second graders to name a teddy bear "Mohammad". Pardoned later, and spent only a week or so in jail before being deported. Even the genocidal junta in Sudan didn't like that kind of publicity.

I however only just heard about the "Qatif Girl". A twenty year old woman sentenced in Saudi Arabia to 90 lashes for being gang-raped. The technical charge was dishonoring Islam by being alone with a man. She must not have had a very good lawyer, since technically she couldn't very well have been alone with just one man if she was gang raped. That just doesn't make any sense. In fact, her lawyer must really have sucked: when the woman appealed, she got a hundred ten additional lashes added to her sentence, and another six months of jail time. Why so lenient?

The brazen slut should have kept her yap shut. You can just tell so much about the whore from her photo. Bitch. Look at her, the slut. The way she's showing her fingers like that. I bet she has long nails. Whore. And the white of her eye. Makes me sick.

At first it seemed a little unreasonable -- 200 lashes for being raped. But then I thought about it a little, and it gave me an erection. So now I get it. Beating up these woman and gang raping them is really hot and sexy. That Islam is the bomb. How could I have missed it all this time? My bad.

On a related note, a Colorado couple is suing the state police for returning their marijuana plants dead. They have a licence now, you see -- too late some might think, but that's a technicality. And Raging Grannies is suing the city of Ferndale, Michigan for citing them for honking their horns -- for peace -- as a protest against the Illegal War in Iraq -- you know, free speech and political expression. Sheesh. Isn't it obvious?

I'm going to start expressing myself politically by raping and flogging strangers. If I do it publicly, it must be okay. I have a trained logical mind. And a new-found sensual interest.

Speaking of impeccable logic, here's an item of interest: The Mexican pop star Sergio Gomez, of the band K-Paz de la Sierra,

was kidnapped last week in Morelia, Michoacan, and tortured to death.

Gomez is just one of a handful of Mexican musicians to meet such a fate recently. It seems that drug gangs "adopt" a favorite musician as a sort of mascot, whom rival gangs may then execute -- posted on the web with appropriate soundtrack. Huh. That seems sort of weird, doesn't it. Oh. Wait. I'm getting an erection.
