I sat in a small auditorium this evening at a downtown campus of a local suburban university and I could swear that Beverly was there among the audience, though they pretty much all looked the same: old people, grey pony tails, and hippie attire, row upon row, clapping over comments by a gaggle of shop-worn Death Hippies going on about the Jooos!
Beverly. You would probably recognise her alone, but in that crowd it was hard to tell one from another.
About Bev, just for a sec.

On March 20, the Globe and Mail posted a video on its Web site that showed West Vancouver resident Khadija Abdul Qahaar in Pakistan begging for her life. How did she get there?
Giesbrecht was a born-again Christian until shortly after the September 11 attacks when she embraced Islam. For several years, she regularly espoused ideas and arguments similar to those of Islamic fundamentalists. In November, she was kidnapped by the Taliban. Today, she remains held for ransom in Pakistan, allegedly near the border with Afghanistan. In the March 20 video, Qahaar, 52, states that she expects to be killed by the end of the month. ...[....]I don't know where Bev is off to, and maybe she wasn't at the evening's meeting, but there were plenty who could have passed for her twins.
Frankly, of the lot of them in the audience this evening, the only one I found even vaguely interesting was the young Lebanese Palestinian homosexual I chatted with for a bit. I'm not, myself, but I can't condemn a guy for that, so I just mention that he was nice. As far as the "I'm not a Jew-hater, but" crowd, well, what can I say?
The gay guy was cute. Maybe he has a sister he can introduce me too. Otherwise, the evening, for me, was a dud, bud. And that is my seriously free speech.
