Today's Quote of the Day

Hey, there's going to be one today after all! Sorry that I didn't include it in the poem post (I hadn't checked my Google Reader yet).

"The problem with any unwritten law is that you don't know where to go to erase it." - Glaser and Way

It's difficult to change things when they aren't exactly tangible (although there are most certainly ways to do it, as Rose finds out in When The Sun Was In Your Hair). That's part of our problem. There's things we know are wrong, and we would like to change them (at least on some level), but it is not a procedure or policy or group of people that needs the changing. It is our collective mindset. Or, as puts it, our thought bubbles.
That YouTube channel is an excellent one that I recommend to everyone.

Women in Saudi Arabia are not allowed to drive. However, there is nothing in either Islam or the government's laws against it. Women are severely punished if they do drive somewhere. Fortunately, the King is willing to change this. Unfortunately, because there is technically nothing wrong with them driving, it will be difficult to do.

Just something to think about.

Maybe I will try to provide daily quotes. Or at least daily ones on the weekends. We will see.
