On Fear, Hatred, and Injustice

I heard on NPR yesterday: A Pakistani businessman (Mr. Khan) was ejected from a Delta airline flight beacuse the pilot was not comfortable flying with him. I commend Mr. Khan for his poise, and for a lucid interview. What am I going to if people are not comfortable developing software with me, or playing fantasy football with me? Afterall, I look like at least seven of the suspects!

Here's Another Incident (via

Kashimiri Muslims (via Yahoo): "Afghan warriors, we are with you! Long live Afghanistan! Long live Pakistan!" -- How come these people, living in Indian soil, never say "Long Live India?"

Use Pakistan Against Taliban: "Why not pay Pakistan to take out the Taliban and bin Laden. Literally, pay them to take over the country, then pay them to rebuild?"-- This idea not only won't work, but also is immoral. Let us fight our own war, and stop exploiting the poor.

A joke only people of UNIX origin will get:
