No more posts until 2006

Had a few things I wanted to post -- notably the verdict against Ayman Nour, which is going to be a repeat of the Saad Eddin Ibrahim case -- but alas, no time. My immediate reaction is sympathy for Nour's two teenage sons, which are the clearest sign I've seen that he is a good man and does not deserve what is happening to him.

I'm off to somewhere far from all this stuff, over in the southern hemisphere where it's the middle of summer. See you next year.
