They Put Their Jeans on Two Legs At a Time

Silly stunts to get into pants a half-second quicker (minus the long set-up time).


Thanks to Conservative Belle.

On a more serious note, she highlights the plight of a Yemeni journalist who may be sentenced to death by the government...

While the USS Cole bombers are all free in Yemen, my friend the Yemeni journalist Abdulkarim al-Khaiwani will be sentenced May 21 in a bogus trial and likely will get the death penalty or a long prison term. He is charged with insulting the president and demoralizing the military with an article about the Sa’ada war. He is an internationally renowned journalist and one of Yemen’s most prominent and outspoken democracy advocates.

This is the guy I made the online petition for in March 2005 and the bloggers all helped and he got amnesty. Since then he and I have become good friends. He loves democracy as much as I do. And he’s paid the price for it. Since he was released in 2005, Al-Khaiwani has been beaten, kidnapped, censored and imprisoned. His paper was cloned, his website blocked and his children threatened.


Sign the petition for his release. It can't hurt.
