Pharyngula has a nice piece here about a Sudanese woman wearing pants to dinner, and receiving 40 lashes as punishment for doing so. I heard today on the radio that a retired Air Force general who is heading up the US relief efforts in Khartoum was stating that the US embargoes are making things worse, and that the genocide is over - contrary to the United States' UN Ambassador's position. I don't have an official position pro or anti embargo or relief, but I do appreciate when people wear pants to dinner, hiding their naked butts, or their stained under wear, and allowing me to sit down without having to bring my own towel to sit upon.
She wore pants!?!?! Did she "Plow on Sunday" as well?
