    This Muslim commentator is proud to say that, when a blogger yesterday queried why should President Katsav's 'incapacity pronouncement' be not declared null and void and that he be reinstated as President, I also echoed "WHY NOT, INDEED? After all Wolfowitz won't be quitting in spite of his acknowledging the truth of what is being reproached to him. Now that President Katsav has decided to ask that his 'incapacity pronouncement be extended indefinitely, I salute this wise bow to the better part of valor. President Kaysav is not guilty until proven so. So far there seems only to be a prima facie case. I am proud to say that, as a Muslim, I take this dignity-preserving principle.
