Bhutto Assassinated

Turns out a professional political blogger really ought to check the newspaper before putting up posts about ice girls because even during the holidays big stuff can happen like Benazir Bhutto being assassinated in part of a larger attack that seems to have killed over a dozen people. As usual when there's a big breaking story like this abroad, there's probably not a ton I can usefully say about this in the short term but, clearly, it's a big deal that seems to bode ill for stability in Pakistan and the world in general.
