Benazir waves to supporters at the rally. She has been asked to call off an earlier rally in Rawalpindi on fears that her security could not be guaranteed by the Musharraf government.

This was her first rally in Rawalpindi, the army cantonment town near the capital Islamabad, since her return from an eight-year exile in October.

God’s Failure

A man walking along a California beach was deep in prayer.

All of a sudden, he said out loud, “Lord, grant me one wish.”

Suddenly the sky clouded above his head and in a booming voice the Lord said, “Because you have TRIED to be faithful to me in all ways, I will grant you one wish.”

The man said, “Build a bridge to Hawaii so I can drive over anytime I want to.”

The Lord said, “Your request is very materialistic. Besides, think of the logistics of that kind of undertaking. The supports required to reach the bottom of the Pacific!

The concrete and steel it would take! I can do it, but it is hard for me to justify your desire for worldly things.

Take a little more time and think of another wish, a wish you think would honor and glorify me.”

The man thought about it for a long time.

Finally he said, “Lord, I wish that I could understand women.

I want to know how they feel inside, what they are thinking when they give me the silent treatment, why they cry, what they mean when they say ‘nothing’, and how I can make a woman truly happy.”

After a few thoughtful minutes God said, “You want two lanes or four on that bridge?”

Best Friends

Sambath Uon and his best pal Lucky

The struggle to find that perfect pet for their child can send some mothers and fathers loopy.

Luckily for the parents of six-year- old Sambath Uon, his best friend slithered right into his lap.

The boy refuses to go to bed without the 6m (20ft) Burmese python named Lucky.

‘I love the python like my sister,’ said Sambath. ‘All my friends are jealous of her.’

When Lucky first slunk into the Cambodian village, she was 50cm (20in) long and Sambath was just three months old.

His parents tried to return it to the forest three times but she kept coming back.

Sambath’s mother, Kim Kanara, said: ‘We would find it asleep next to Sambath. They have slept together every night for the past six years.

‘She is a member of the family now. We shelter, feed, bathe and even pray to her.’ Lucky, or Chomreun in Khmer, is thought to have healing powers.

Mrs Kanara added: ‘Some recovered from sickness after being blessed by her.’
