$500 is probably about a year’s salary in Sudan.

It is remarkable that when archaic laws need to be ended it takes women putting on the pants. The men of Sudan should be embarrassed that they have let such laws continue. What are they, men or sheep?

I guess Britney Spears won’t have any trouble with the law in Sudan.

She doesn’t wear any.
