    Bail? Let's call it what it really is, ransom for a kidnapping.

    Nah. Muslims think that dogs are unclean. They'd have to send someone named after a purer animal. Mohammed had a donkey that supposedly carried him off to heaven, and by now, it would be mummified, so maybe they should send Mohammed's crusty old ass after her. :D

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    I'm glad they released her and hope that Iran releases her two friends soon, also. I hope they have learned that some parts of the world are just not good vacation destinations for american backpackers. The Iran/Iraq border, the China/North Korea border, Khyber Pass, Darfur, the parts of South America run by drug cartels, etc., none are very good places to be a stupid american tourist.

    There's really no good place to be a stupid American tourist. In fact, there's really no good place to be stupid, regardless of nationality or travel status.

    Canada is pretty safe for stupid american tourists. Toronto, in particular. Pedestrians have the right of way, even if they are not using a crosswalk. That just seems like a law written for stupid people.

    It is. NYC has the same law, which is why everybody jaywalks.

    But, in the words of John Wayne, "Life is hard. It's harder if you're stupid."
