News on the widows of the Bali terrorist attack

In this post I expressed my ire at what some of the Balinese widows of last year's terrorist attack on their island were being put through. But there is good news -- they have some help. Read the last comment in the post and check out AdoptA.

Hey Andrea! I saw that you made the list on the Carnival of Vanities with cut on the bias.

BTW thanks for dropping a comment on mine! I agree : she has improved, somewhat, although I seem to remember GoF had the worst of it like the first one. I hope it lives up to the hype as well, especially with the surprises it promises. I dont think its really going to be about who dies, but thats just my own wishful thinking!

Yeah, the Carnival has found me. I knew I couldn't hide forever!

Re: the Harry Potter books (subject of pt. 2 of Sharon's comment) -- I hope that Rowling held off the baying hounds of the publishers long enough to tighten and polish the grammar on number 5 too. I'm not fussy about perfect writing in everything I read, but good prose is nice, and it keeps the snooty reviewers pacified.
