Latchkey blogger

Blogging has been moderately light (as far as content and commentary) due to an inundation of scholarship deadlines and essays that need to be written. The one I'm currently editing answers the question: Why should Americans help civil rights reformers in the Middle East?

If that's not a loaded question, I'm not sure what is.

Geebus. What school is that question from?

You know you could go with the one line response: "Because the world generally frowns on 'nuking' them."

Why should Arabs help civil rights reformers in America?

Could it be that there are no civil rights in the Middle East? That would not include Israel, though.

It was a private scholarship contest and possibly the most difficult question I've ever answered in under 1,500 words.
