172. Strange juxtaposition: Saint Julian and an entire nation looking to shed dictatorial rule...
Can't wrap my mind around that.

This thread was supposed to be about correspondents and photographers/videographers being beaten til they needed hospitalization.

I doubt that Mr. Palkot and his Videographer think/thought about Saint Julian at all while they were being beaten.
