If I'm In Jail I'll Take A Nobel Laureate Too

Friday, April 24, 2009

I can't help it, I'm cynical on certain things - and applying pressure to foreign governments - it can go either way (and didn't you see Return To Paradise?) but maybe it all can make a difference and with enough support Roxana Saberi, Euna Lee, and Laura Ling can actually get back safe - although if you just read the news you'd also know that North Korea decided to formerly indict Euna Lee And Laura Ling, and while they still have to actually be convicted, with no real intervention happening right now -- it's not looking so good.

Things are though on the upswing for Roxana Saberi (if you can call it that) - there've been campus rallies across the nation, more media organizations are taking up her plea - and now - Shirin Ebadi who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2003 has decided to defend Saberi.

So will it make a difference?

You'd think so.

You'd hope so.

But in the end - you never really know.
