Trouble in Bahrain and Need for Spellcheck

leave a comment »

Our meeting this morning in Bahrain was canceled due to the police action at the Pearl roundabout. By the way, a roundabout can in no way be called a “square.” The Pearl Roundabout is near the El Seif mall. Al Jazeera more accurately described the roundabout as a landmark. Unfortunately, the following was in a report describing the morning’s events,
“Speaking to Al Jazeera from the scene, she said the crowd is chanting: “Down with Al-Khalifa”, in reference to the country’s ruling family.

“People are also chanting that the blood of the victims will not be in vein,” she added.”

Presumably not.
