    In rebuke to Taliban, Pakistan college named for Malala

    So, this made me happy and I thought I'd post something positive to brighten things up.

    Swat, Pakistan (CNN) -- In a message of defiance to the Taliban, authorities in Swat have decided to rename a government college after Malala Yousafzai, the 15-year-old girl who was shot in the head after demanding education for girls.

    Imagine your children living under these circumstances.

    Evil isn't a strong enough word for these Allah driven maniacs.

    The bolded part for sure. As much as this is an "in your face" to the Taliban, it also presents a nearly irresistible target for the Taliban to "in your face" right back.
