Friday random thoughts...

• Extremely badly, very badly, or really badly: How will the assassination of Benazir Bhutto affect the just-around-the-corner Pakistani elections?

• I'm guessing extremely badly: The last thing Pakistan needed was the murder of an inspirational leader who believed in the power of democracy.

• At least we can say "At least it's not Pakistan": Our candidates for president might not be a popular group, but they're probably not going to attract a homegrown suicide attack. (Let's hope.)

• Because Christmas should never involve running from a tiger: The San Francisco Zoo.

• Guess these priests missed the memo about "peace on earth, good will to all men": Police even had to break up the brawl.

• Thank God for small favors: It might be arbitrary, but the New Year is upon us. Which means we get a chance to actually get it right. Or screw up all over again. As usual.

• Calvin and Hobbes quote of the week: "A new year... a fresh, clean start!" "It's like having a big white sheet of paper to draw on!" "A day full of possibilities!" "It's a magical world, Hobbes ol' buddy... Let's go exploring!"
