Abdul Rahman to be Freed

According to an article in The Detroit News an Afghan court dismissed the case that had Abdul Rahman facing possible execution for converting from Islam to Christianity, and an official said he could soon walk free, perhaps as early as today. Another Afghan official closely involved with the case told the AP that the court ruled there was insufficient evidence and returned the case to prosecutors for further investigation. But he said Rahman would be released in the meantime. Abdul had to be moved from a Kabul jail Friday because of threats from inmates, officials said. But, underlining authorities' security problems, he was put into solitary confinement at the notorious Policharki prison - where riots sparked by Muslim extremists killed six people last month. I pray that he is released soon and is not killed by Muslim extremists when he is released.

Last night Phil and I saw Inside Man at the Cinemark 24 at Jordan Landing. I rate it 4 (out of 5) stars. Denzel Washington played his role well as he always does. Some parts were predictable and other parts were kind of vague but it was a good movie. I do wish they had tied up some loose ends at the end of the movie. I'm planning on seeing Ice Age 2: The Meltdown, Brick, Lucky Number Slevin, The Sentinel, and United 93.
