  2. Me..... What needs to be understood is that there is no "absolute freedom of expression". The famous saying: My freedom ends where yours begins, is so true. The extent of freedom varies; it's a reality we all need to accept.

    I am sure the Russian journalist was well aware of the possible consequences. We shouldn't lament at the "lack of freedom", instead we should applaud her courage of conviction, her ability to persevere inspite of odds. Not many can do that.

  3. Same profession, different location. It's terrible when so called preachers indulge in heinous crimes!
