    re Libya and Lockerbie victims. As you come from the UK I am surprised that you are seemingly unaware that the families of the UK victims of Lockerbie wished to see justice done and do not on the whole believe it has been done. Reverend John Mosey's 19-year-old daughter Helga was killed. He didn't object to Megrahi's release, but is upset because the Libyan decided to abandon the appeal of his conviction. "I'm pleased he's gone home because my opinion is colored by my feeling that he was almost certainly not guilty..." http://www.voanews.com/english/2009-10-20-voa23.cfm Dr. Jim Swire who has acted as spokesman for the British families believes that the convicted Libyan has been the victim of a miscarriage of justice. http://www.lockerbietruth.com/ Professor Robert Black who was instrumental in getting the agreement of Libya and the US to allow the trial to take place in Holland and witnessed the whole trial also believes that a miscarriage of justice has taken place. http://www.lockerbiecase.blogspot.com/ You stated that Libya had admitted guilt. "Gadaffi openly admitted their wrongdoing making them guilty of deliberate (Not collateral damage in a war) murder of innocent victims" Errant nonsense. Shukri Ghanem, Libyan Prime Minister 2003 to 2006, has twice said in radio and television interviews that Libya was not responsible and reluctantly paid $2.7 billion compensation only "to buy peace and move forward." Frankly George you are so ill informed on these events you would be advised to check up your facts [before making them up].

This Valentine's day, celebrate not love, but the sublime bond of friendship

Friendship is free of the indignities, suffering and drama that characterize romantic love; it doesn't have an expiration date; we rarely suspect it to be a figment of our imagination. But love is what fuels our economy.
