I count the reasons why I won’t raise my daughter in Pakistan. The attitudes of Pakistanis towards women leave a lot to be desired and women don’t have much opportunity there.

No Country for Old Men
No Country for Old Men is a good movie with a strange, psychopathic villain. I liked it despite the last 15 minutes which felt like an hour or more.
On memorial day weekend, we drove to the Georgia coast. Brunswick, St Simons Island, and Jekyll Island were fun. Here are some photographs.
The Third Man
This is a classic thriller set in post-WWII Vienna. Every movie buff should see it.
American Muslim Women Literary Anthology
An anthology of non-fiction stories of courtship and dating by American Muslim women is being put together by Baraka. Go visit her blog for submission information.
New Hampshire Primary
Today is the New Hampshire primary. Here are some predictions and thoughts about the election. Go Obama!
This is a movie about sending a man, suspected to be a terrorist, to another country so that he can be tortured. The practice of extraordinary rendition actually dates from the war on drugs. It’s a good movie, worth watching.
The primary season has been on for eternity, but the elections start tomorrow. I support Obama while Amber supports Richardson. On the other hand, I plan to vote against Giuliani.
Happy New Year.
