Monday Book Pick – Uller Uprising

Monday, April 6th, 2009

Uller Uprising, by the late H. Beam Piper

That’s change we can believe in!

Paween Mushtakhel, 41, and her two children left Afghanistan on Friday. Hours later, under intense pressure from critics worldwide, President Hamid Karzai promised to review new laws that are said in effect to legalise marital rape in the Shi’ite minority.

I’m not going to be holding my breath waiting for the outrage from famous leftist “feminists.”
