Bizarre Coincidence

A couple of weeks ago, I received a call from the Albuquerque Council of International Visitors, and was asked if I I’d be willing to sit down and talk with some visiting Pakistani journalists about the role of social media in political coverage. Then today I read this (subscription):

Former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, who resigned Monday under intense political pressure, could seek asylum in the United States and is considering making his home in New Mexico, according to a respected Pakistani journalist and scholar.

Shuja Nawaz , author of a new book on the Pakistani military, told the Journal on Wednesday that Musharraf’s safety is in jeopardy in Pakistan and he is contemplating his next move.

Nawaz said he learned of Musharraf’s interest in the Land of Enchantment “from a well connected person in Pakistan,” but Nawaz stressed that the information is “unconfirmed.”

I’m sure one thing has nothing to do with another, but you have to admit that it is a bizarre coincidence.
