But Hey, at Least Franco's Still Dead

Nawaz Sharif, last seen ramming through constitutional amendments to put him in charge of the country for life, is returning to Pakistan in what he hails as a "victory for democracy." Benazir Bhutto, prime minister for almost two years in the late 1980s before being run into exile for embezzling a few hundred million dollars -- her and her husband have had Interpol warrants for such issued for them -- is also set to return.

I can only imagine how much living standards will improve in that part of the world once they've gotten rid of that mean old general and replaced it with civilian government.
