The Definition of Insanity

Insanity is commonly defined as doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results each time. No one has apparently explained this concept to Nasrullah ibn Ibadullah. Ibadullah, former chief mufti of Turkmenistan, was released from prison last week after being jailed for his alleged participation in the failed 2002 assassination attempt on Niyazov. Today RFE/RL reports that Ibadullah has agreed to join the Turkmen government, AGAIN, as an adviser to the State Council of Religious Affairs.

After sampling some of Turkmenistan's 1100 different types of musk melon while celebrating national Melon Day on Sunday, Ibadullah decided to give working for the Turkmen government another shot. One can only hope it works out better for him this time around.
