Yemen, that hotbed of freedom and love. Blessed be Mr. Aqlan, for surely your country is not.

Noted. Thanks, Carrie. I don't know why Al Qaeda is always mentioned...there is a lot of anger and individuals with grudges. They don't know who did this, but are always quick to fearmonger by mentioning Al Qaeda. Doesn't anything ever fall under, "Random Acts of Violence" anymore?
