If you’ve ever needed a reason to be grateful to live in the United States, this may be one.  Simple as it may be, at least we can go on social networking sites.  Oh yeah…and by the way, you can be friends with us at WYRK on facebook too.  I know…it’s a shameful plug.

On Saturday, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia unexpectedly blocked access to Facebook, amid concerns that the social networking site had been posing a threat to the country’s conservative moral code. When news of the ban first broke, it appeared that Saudi Arabia was following in the footsteps of Bangladesh and Pakistan, both of which had blocked Facebook earlier this year in the wake of the ‘Everybody Draw Mohammed Day’ controversy.
