This story about the Pakistani government’s announcement that Benazhir Bhutto died because she hit her head on the sunroof just stuns me. I suppose you might fracture your skull and die thereof… especially when you’re falling because of a bomb blast and three bullet wounds to the neck. Next thing you know, the Security Forces will say that they were actually firing three warning shots… into her head… when she “fell” onto the sunroof. Clearly, she had it coming. I suppose they’ll say anything to keep her from retaining the martyr status she’s already been accorded by her followers. I doubt that Bhutto would have brought about real change– it’s likely there’d have been more of the same corruption that led to her ouster, twice– but clearly the opposition, or government, or whomever’s responsible, saw their own position as so precarious to warrant assassinating the first viable contender. We descended from the forests and the trees millions of years ago, but our learning to walk upright hasn’t taught us to behave upright.
