It's a sad day for democracy and humanity that Benazir Bhutto has been assassin- ated. I claim no great knowledge of Pakistan. the political situation therein or of Benazir herself, but she was undoubtedly a brave woman who could have lived a comfortable life in exile, but chose a higher calling and returned. She knew the risks and faced them, and for that I salute her and mourn her passing.
