A few days ago, Salam Pax linked to Zaynab, an Iraqi woman with some opinions that are probably heard frequently on the streets of Baghdad, but which are far outside the pale of what one hears in the United States. After a couple of days of reading her comments thread, Arab Street Bum had had enough. His whole post is worth quoting, so I'll just direct you to it. The blogosphere sometimes has the potential to catapult someone into a spotlight they may or may not be emotionally ready for - I hope Zainab doesn't get too down from all the negative attention she's turned up. Meanwhile, I'll contemplate this Tom Friedman column on the world's interconnectedness.
