Thanks JL for the link to the very informative article by Thor Halvorssen. Kudos to the unknown individual who invented the escape plan and to the UK for providing asylum. I do hope that his family can be reunited with him soon. Read and noted.

Well, I am glad he got out. And I have one more reason to have no respect for the Kardashian's. Though I've never seen their show, it is impossible to completely avoid news of them. People who are famous for being famous annoy me. My own prejudice showing I guess. But how any woman could go into one of those countries most known for their atrocious human rights record and especially for their terrible treatment of women and prattle as she did is beyond me. I guess self-respect isn't in the playbook anymore.
