Just popping my head in to call your attention to this— I can’t think of a visceral-enough adjective— slideshow of Benazir Bhutto‘s last moments (graphic, but worth viewing in full screen if you can). I’ve never lived in a country where citizens took their democracy seriously enough to risk death at a rally.
Are any of our 2008 candidates willing to die for their vision of the country the way Bhutto died for her own? Should that be the acid test?
