It might be time for another trip to the eye doctor

I thought this post was entitled "Shania and Democracy" and I clicked the link hopin' to see some sexy picks of Shania Twain. I didn't find any. I was severely disappointed. Of course, I also figured I must be gettin' way behind in my current events 'cause I didn't know who or what Sharia was. I think Ms. Singletary would be disappointed in me, now. When I was in second grade, I was teacher's pet because I always was up on current events. My, how my priorities have changed since puberty. I seem to think much more aboutthe shape of women now than I do about the shape of the world's affairs. Is that a bad thing?

Sharia is Islamic law. Judges must be clerics, etc. If it were enacted law by law, and cleric-judges were required to judge according to the enacted law, it would be compatible with our rule of law and democracy.
As it is normally followed; however, the clerics both make and judge the law, and are not elected officials. This is not exactly compatible with democracy.

P.S. I'm sure you didn't want to know that but I thought I'd tell you anyway. :)
