I can't even begin to imagine how she could have written such a beautiful piece surrounded by all the horrors she saw.

So sad.

It sure is Mike. Here's is a fantastic documentary, about 14 minutes long, from Homs. It just shows you what these journalists have to go through to bring us the news from war zones. It's the children that are heart breaking to watch. They just want to play.

We owe so much to people like her.

I know I've read comments by you on here before about Scottish Independence from England. The Washington Post's lead article in the International section was about Scottish Independence and it was a great, informative read.

I read the Scottish independence article and obviously it is none of my business, but CAN Scotland survive as an independent nation?

I'd answer your question with a 'Yes' Mike but I'm totally opposed to it.
