More in the News (from Emily)

Just two weeks ago today, a twelve year old girl in Pakistan died from unexplained injuries she had received at her employer's house. She was working as a maid, and her wealthy employer claims she fell down the stairs and then died from a skin disease he had magnanimously been providing treatment for. Meanwhile the death certificate says she died from blood poisoning, and that the injuries on her body were caused by "blunt means." Her family is so poor, though, that it's not looking like justice is about to happen.

Very tragic.

In other news, let's not forget about Sarah Palin's expanding political life. Heaven knows the issues and controversies surrounding that woman are worthy of a post, so keep following the blog - sometime soon, I'll be contributing a bit on Sarah Palin's media coverage vs. Scott Brown's media coverage. In fact, if you have any thoughts or sources on that, send them my way.

And last but not least - Yulia Tymoshenko, who became Ukraine's first female Prime Minister in 2005, is currently struggling in her bid for the 2010 presidential elections.
