OK... who put Monday directly after Wednesday last week...?
It has been one of those weekends that looks a whole lot like the work week here. Hope yours went better.
Here's your Open thread for Sunday, just in case you've something to say about it. ...Or about all the other things happening out there in the wide world.
Use this wisely, folks. The usual rules apply: play nice.
As always, thank you All for coming here.
Here are some brief links of things passed over the last couple of days:
Switzerland continues to show remarkable good sense on matters of a free people maintaining arms.
A series of rounds of hostage releases in Colombia has freed four of the many, many hostages of the FARC. I'd like to say it is the beginning of freedom for all the kidnapped... but it likely is not. A one-off or just a step forward.
Meanwhile, fan favorite Hugo Chavez continues to make a mockery of himself. Just for reference sake... Chavez couldn't carry Hosni Mubarak's briefcase. Sure would be nice if the people of Venezuela were a little more motivated to show him the door after seeing how things went in Egypt, though.
Ayman Nour of Egypt's al-Glad (Tomorrow Party) should have more sense than to be saying things like this, especially in the media. Unless, of course, he is proposing returning Sinai to Israel... (Boy, that wouldn't make it a minute in the court of public opinion, but again, it sure would be nice.)
