Nojoud got her divorce, and other items

Via Instapundit and Althouse, little Nojoud Muhammed Nasser got her divorce.

God bless her and keep her.

Cassandra has an excellent post on how the military are treated with contempt:
Men like Cavett like to pretend doing ones' duty is optional. Who knows? Perhaps in their world, it is? Their somewhat bizarre world view allows them to mock what they will never comprehend. But the complex reality they refuse to acknowledge or respect is that, if everyone thought as they do, America would be defenseless against fanatacists who have sworn never to stop until we are wiped off the face of the earth. Men like Cavett can contend until the end of time that extremists are not a threat. The truth of the matter is, the only thing standing between him and violent extremists are the kind of men he likes to belittle. If he doesn't show up for work, a column doesn't get written. If they don't show up for work, someone may die. Thousands may die. Nations, sometimes.
Mamacita can't wait to get to San Francisco. Neither can I.
