60 lashes ordered for Saudi woman journalistA 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.
Car 4I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!
