Tossing Pebbles in the Stream

This blog is my place to sit and toss pebbles into the stream. The stream of Life relentlessly passing before us. We can affect it little. For the most part I just watch it passing and follow the flow. Occasionally, I need to comment on its passing, tossing a pebble at it to enjoy the ripple affect upon Life's surface.

Trying to Win Friends


Currently Karen Hughes, a public relations professional, is an envoy for the Bush Administration travelling through Muslim counties like Turkey and Egypt, trying to build support and understanding of the United States. She iften speaks to women and student groups.

From all reports Hughes has not done a very good job and has received some hostile responses from her audiences. Currently, she is in Indonesia, the largest Muslim country in the World. Before a group of University students one female student posted the question to which many of use would like an answer ""Your policies are creating hostilities among Muslims," a female student, Lailatul Qadar, told Hughes. "It's Bush in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine and maybe it's going to be in Indonesia, I don't know. Who's the terrorist? Bush or us Muslims?" "Your policies are creating hostilities among Muslims," a female student, Lailatul Qadar, told Hughes. "It's Bush in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine and maybe it's going to be in Indonesia, I don't know. Who's the terrorist? Bush or us Muslims?"

I am sorry that Blogger failled to publish more than half of this blog. it left off some ideas I have about more creative ways the US could have responded to terrorism other than the military one which has proved so disasterous and counter productive. Perhaps, in a later entry I will try to express these ideas.
