The following story: "Sex-slave trade flourishes in Kosovo" at http://www.msnbc.com/news/416095.asp?cp1=1 is pretty sad. Also, notice how they spelled Guilani (town of Gjilan). --- Also, Roger Waters (formerly with the band Pink Floyd) was inspired by events in Kosova to write his new song. Here's an excerpt from a recent article: "Waters says he has about five songs completed and plans to play one of them, ``Each Small Candle,'' during this summer's tour. Inspired by a report from Kosovo about a Serbian soldier who broke ranks to help a wounded Albanian woman, the song, according to Waters, posits the idea that ``we're all important to one another and we all have a personal responsibility ... to make one significant or beautiful mark on the big painting.'' That's been a common theme in Waters' work, particularly his solo outings, and he says it will likely be a thread running through the rest of his next album. ``I've always been obsessed with the idea of senseless death and destruction and pain and poverty and things that are actually avoidable,'' says Waters, whose father was killed in battle during World War II. ``And they may well be becoming more avoidable as we learn to communicate with each other directly."
