Sharia Law: Decidedly Not PC

An Afghan college student downloaded an article and was sentenced to death by religious “scholars” who “lacked the sophistication to understand the difference between downloading an article and writing it.”

"The judges did not even know the difference between a keyboard and a monitor."

Needless to say, I fear for the future of our libraries....

Hi Amy! Sorry I haven’t been in touch. This time I have a good excuse, though: My dear mr. was in the hospital for a while—emergency surgery, the whole shebang. He’s recovering nicely, but I’ve been an absolute wreck lately.
