UPDATE 1: (Background) Marks & Sparks has backed down: "Marks and Spencer has agreed to end its policy of charging more for larger bras after a campaign by customers. The store took out adverts in Friday's newspapers admitting it had 'boobed' and promising to standardise prices." [H/Ts to Shakers SapphireCate and The Bald Soprano.]

UPDATE 2: (Background) A deal between the British and Lao governments has been struck that may allow Samantha Orobator to serve her sentence in the UK if she is convicted. "A spokeswoman for the legal charity Reprieve welcomed the agreement. 'It is great news but we are still concerned that it is enacted early enough for Samantha to come home while she is still fit to travel,' she said." Orobator has also finally been appointed a local attorney. It's still a huge clusterfuck, but there is some movement.

Keep blogging it. Speak Orobator's name. Let them know we're paying attention.
