As we sit idly by...

Times of London: "They grabbed Mrs Chipiro [45, a former pre-school teacher] and chopped off one of her hands and both her feet. Then they threw her into her hut, locked the door and threw a petrol bomb through the window [burning her alive]."  They did this to her because she was married to a junior official in the opposition party in Zimbabwe.  While I do enjoy a good political rant and the occasional hyperbole, events like this give pause and (political) perspective while serving as a reminder that the freedoms we enjoy should not be taken for granted.  (h/t Instapundit, who quotes a reader who says "shooting's too good for them".)
