    60 lashes ordered for Saudi woman journalist

    A Saudi court sentenced a journalist on Saturday to 60 lashes after she was charged with involvement in a television show in which a Saudi man talked about sex.

    The journalist, Rozanna al-Yami, 22, is believed to be the first female Saudi journalist to be given such a punishment. The charges included involvement in preparing the program and advertising it on the Internet. Ms. Yami said she had worked as a coordinator for the program but had not worked on the episode in question. She said the judge, in the western city of Jidda, had handed down the sentence “as a deterrence.”

    “I am too frustrated and upset to appeal the sentence,” Ms. Yami said.

    Oh how thoroughly modern are our friends, the Saudi's. If they didn't breed over a very large pool of oil, they would still be herding camels.

    I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!
