bon mot

Like water, like speech. Some squander our abundance, withdrawn from the mouths of others.

I have been following the posts on Global Voices On Line (see links) about the arrest on 10 December of Fouad Alfarhan, a (US-educated) Saudi blogger whose predictions that his open advocacy of the rights of Saudi political prisoners would put him in jeopardy were unfortunately if predictably prescient.

The NYT has just posted the story on the front page (on line).
