Have you seen the bathrooms in Pakistan? She held it throughout her trip and let go once she was on the airplane.

MSM thinks Omeed is a bad guy, not because he injured 12 Jewish people, but because he drove an SUV.

I had some heated exchanges w/ bloggers of the Omeed case. I say it's low-grade jihad -- though still deadly -- cultural sense. (The way Adam Sandler or Barbra Streisand are Jews -- they are, but only by extraction.)

Nitty-gritty questions should come to the fore in understanding Popal: the freedom of dating in a secular society vs. arranged marriage, the misery of living with mental illness. The combination of these pushed him over the edge. How he expressed it, however -- comandeering a vehicle, rampaging through one of the most affluent and Jewish sections of SF -- that's Muslim, that's jihad, that's copycat terrorism in the image of Mohammed Atta and Naveed Haq.

One can be crazy, and still be guilty of homicide and attempted homicide. I wouldn't write him off as crazy and technically not culpable so quickly. I hope his bride in Pakistan can get an anullment.
