Farewell to 2007

Thanks for all the turmoil and upheaval. What would a year be without it? Peaceful?

We'll know early tomorrow whether the election in Pakistan will be delayed.
Opposition leader Nawaz Sharif, like Bhutto also a former prime minister, said Monday that the election should be held Jan. 8, while also saying Musharraf should resign and be replaced by a national unity government.

"He is a one-man calamity. He is responsible for all the trouble in Pakistan. The country is burning," Sharif said.

Kenya really showed the rest of the world the importance of voting. And President Mwai Kibaki must feel pretty damn good right now. Because when you get 115% of the vote in a precinct, you must be doing something right!
Suspicions over rigging were fueled by the fact that the opposition took most of the parliamentary seats in Thursday's vote, but Kibaki still won the election.

As our little world spins today, 2008 arrives slowly but surely. And aside from a numerical difference, we can probably expect a lot more of the same.
