Teddy Bear Fatwa Comes to An End

Thank goodness, something vaguely like reason has prevailed in the case of a British teacher imprisoned in Sudan because she let he class name a teddy bear "Muhammad." After being convicted last week and sentenced to 15 days in prison and deportation, the teacher was released today after the Sudanese President granted her a pardon. Good on him for stepping up and doing the right thing.

Still, four days in custody for "insulting religion" is four days too long.

I can't believe that some people were actually calling for her execution over this!!! Really, sadly... I can... but still...
