back to earth

According to a brief on Salon, militants blow themselves up in Mecca. Retarded fuckheads. Choice flying body part:

Nov. 6, 2003

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) -- Two suspected militants blew themselves up Thursday in the holy city of Mecca when security forces tried to arrest them, while a third was shot to death by police during a raid in Riyadh, officials said.

The two who died in Mecca likely belonged to a terror cell that had clashed with Saudi police Monday, a security official said. That cell had been linked to al-Qaida, the terrorist network blamed for the Sept. 11 attacks and for a string of suicide bombings in the Saudi capital of Riyadh in May.

Exam hell is the discussion among Koreabloggers. I've been following the discussion, which has reached meta-discussion stage with the Marmot's recent post referring to the other posts.

And I'll also point out Kevin at IA's fascinating speculation re: whether we're seeing Bush Admin movement toward a deal with North Korea. If so, that's odious.

It appears Kevin just got a shout-out from one of the big dogs, Daily Kos. Congrats, man.

All for now.
