The movie starts off good but the ending is not fun at all. The book on which it is based has a much better ending. I rate it 6/10.

Pakistan Election Aftermath
Musharraf’s allies lose big in Pakistan but the Bush administration is still pro-Musharraf. A coalition government of PPP and PML-N is in the offing.
Pakistan is having elections today. Violence has taken its toll though in dampening any enthusiasm. There are also worries about rigging.
When Victims Become Killers
This is an academic book looking in detail at the history of Rwanda and its neighbors and how that led to the 1994 genocide. Despite being difficult to read due to dry writing, I recommend it highly.
Alien is a good science fiction/horror movie from when I was growing up. It was fun to watch it again.
Today is Super Tuesday with lots of primaries and caucuses. We urge everyone to vote for Barack Obama.
Pursuit of Happyness
A good movie about a father and a son who survive in homeless shelters while the father is going through a stockbroker internship.
