Bad for business: the prosecution of Abdul Rahman
Cross Post from Jack Yoest
Helena Yoest, [center, The Dreamer to right, Charmaine on right] bows her head in prayer before taking part in demonstration, to call for a stop to the prosecution of Abdul Rahman. Difficult to have a business conversation when heads are being sawed off as a matter of personal conviction. Uncertainty is bad for commerce.
So. In my dual goals of 1) World Peace and 2) Keeping the little woman out of Nordstrom’s, I dispatch Charmaine on a bit of civil(ized) disobedience. She takes two of my little women to attempt to cause havoc in Your Nation’s Capital. Protesting at the Afghan Embassy last Friday.
From the Agence France-Presse:
Helena Yoest, 9, bows her head in prayer before taking part in demonstration, in front of the Embassy of Afghanistan in Washington, DC, to call for a stop to the prosecution of Abdul Rahman.
Prayer in public. The Horror.
