Bulgarian aid workers convicted for "spreading AIDs" in Libya

Have you seen this?  Craziness.  Imagine that you were helping in a Libyan hospital.  Imagine that you left your comfortable home to help those in need then you are arrested and inprisoned for 8 years on this craziness.  Clearly this isn’t right. (BTW, still on the road.  Happy that Ihave internet access but everything isn’t working perfectly.  In spite of this I am able to post a little video.)


From CNN.com:

A court convicted five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor Tuesday of deliberately infecting 400 children with HIV and sentenced them to death, despite scientific evidence the youngsters had the virus before the medical workers came to Libya.

The United States and Europe reacted with outrage to the verdict, which prolongs a case that has hurt Libya’s ties to the West. The six co-defendants have already served seven years in jail.

The sentence brought cheers in Libya, where there is widespread public anger over the infections. The Libyan press has long depicted the medical workers as guilty.  more

Congratulation to Daily Kos

Daily Kos has been named as the best blog of 2006 by Weblog Awards. 

The Daily Kos is a great site.  There is a great deal of information on the site.  The volume of information is sometimes overwhelming. 

The Daily Kos beat out some great blogs including the Huffington Post which has star power.  The Daily Kos, I guess has people power?  Little Green Footballs was also in that category.  I’m not sure that I like the format of LGF.  Boing, boing was also beaten out.  Boing Boing is the most popular English language blog in the world.  Again, hats off to Markos and the Daily Kos.
