Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

An interesting Saudi response:

Western expatriates working in Saudi Arabia will be allowed to carry weapons to defend themselves against attacks by Islamic militants.

Prince Nayef bin Abdulaziz, the interior minister, made the radical concession because foreigners working in the private sector feel poorly protected by Saudi security forces.

Well, now. A nation other than the U.S. actually relaxes its gun laws? This is unprecedented.

A caveat though:

However, those working on government contracts will not be eligible and will be protected by the Saudi authorities.

I think I would rather be a private contractor and take my chances with a .45 inside my jacket.
