(Newser) – The UK has granted secret asylum to a Saudi Arabian princess who feared being stoned to death after having a child with a non-Muslim British lover, reports the Independent. The woman's elderly husband is a member of the Saudi Royal family, so asylum was kept hush-hush to avoid appearing to criticize the House of Saud.

F the house of Saud--- Shakespeare could not have said it any better. What’s kind of sad is no one is saying anything about the Saudi prince’s harem (aka stable) and mistresses that he’s probably maintaining. The big thing going on when I was there was European nurses and female teachers going to Saudi and shacking up with these rich SOB’s; five to ten years later they’d go back to Europe with enough money to retire for life. I’m sure this still goes on today.

I wish we could go "green", for our total power demands....The tech is out there to do so, but between big oil, enviromentalist, and the feds...there is too much fighting and self intrest of oil invested companies to do so...(as I fill up my suburban with the extended range gas tank) what do ya do?
