Following up on: Bad vacation choices

This just in:  An elderly French woman, reportedly confined to a wheelchair, was abducted by gunmen from yet another Kenyan luxury resort located near the Somali border.  Once again, I'm left to wonder what part of "near the border of Somalia" is confusing people.

and an interesting bit of trivia:  Recent Iranian prison dweller nee' free-spirited hiker, Shane Bauer has a degree in "Peace and Conflict Studies" from the University of California at Berkeley.  There's all kinds of things I could say about this information, but why bother?  The jokes just write themselves...


  1. I'm pretty sure the fact that someone can tolerate Berkley for 4 yrs says enough.

  2. Good point, April. After four years at Berkeley, two years in an Iranian prison probably didn't seem all that bad.
