  1. I was hoping to see you post something about Malala Yousufzai, Professor. I admire her courage to not only speak out for the educational rights of girls (and girls’ rights in general), but also to speak out against the Taliban’s disgusting atrocities against women.

    I’m guessing that her call on one of the world’s highest stages to ideologically oppose the Taliban through education will enrage her fundamentalist enemies. Did she just prevent herself from ever setting foot in Pakistan again? If so, then I admire her even more.

  2. Bravo! This is how the Taliban will be defeated.

    We still seem to think that killing lots of people will work.
