Nepali victims slaughtered in Iraq finally get justice!

In August of 2004 a dozen Nepali labourers were slaughtered in Iraq by Iraqi insurgents. While the US contractors were trying to escape their responsibilities of compensating the families of the victims, a few good men…yeah like the movie…such as Attorney Matthew Handley…I heard he looks like Tom…fought for the victims’ families for four long years and recently justice has been served. The US Administrative Law Court for the Department of Labour recently declared that the victim’s families were entitled to death benefits and therefore, will recieve compensation of $223/month for each spouse and set of parents, with an additional $75/month for men who had children as long as they live. This compensation will not bring back their beloveds but it will help them raise their little ones hopefully with good education. Justice served!

I had an opportunity to incomplete a guitar class with Professor Galen and it was a great class. He was a good instructor. Don’t believe me? Check out the video. Hey I did not complete the class but its great to see others who are on their way to become fine guitarists. My best wishes to all of them.
Ladies and gentlemen, Flora Amorosa!
