The mid week quote

“I voted then, for Saddam, of course, because I was afraid. But this time, I came here by my own choice. I am not afraid any more. I am a free man.”
Jabar Ahmead Ismail, 75 an Iraqi voter in this week's referendum.
The quote is posted with thanks to the NewYork Times and specifically in tribute to the British and American servicemen as well as journalists who have been killed in the war in Iraq. Freedom comes at a terrible cost, lest we forget.
