Stopped Clock Watch

Michelle Obama navigates limits on women in Saudi Arabia - Yahoo News: "RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — For first lady Michelle Obama, just a few hours in Saudi Arabia were enough to illustrate the stark limitations under which Saudi women live. Joining President Barack Obama for a condolence visit after the death of the King Abdullah, Mrs. Obama stepped off of Air Force One wearing long pants and a long, brightly colored jacket — but no headscarf."

It would be a vast understatement to say I have no respect for Michelle Obama. But credit where credit is due: She did the right thing here.  I'm shocked that Hussein let her.
