"If a bullet should enter my brain...."
Ever since Benazir Bhutto's death, I keep thinking of Harvey Milk who, like Bhutto, suspected he would be assassinated yet kept to his dangerous chosen path. Before he died, he tape recorded something he called a "political will." It said, "If a bullet should enter my brain, let that bullet destroy every closet door." Doors, of all kinds, are still closed, yet because of his life, and his death, many more have been opened. I can only hope it will be so for Ms. Bhutto - that the insanity that led to her assassination will, in reaction, swing her country toward sanity. It does not seem to be doing so now, but only time will tell.
