I watched New Amsterdam
last night which told the several sad tales of rape and murder, the last one was even more sad because it was a Hindu honor killing (that is, the murder of a woman by family members with no freakin' idea what honor is). I first asked myself are
there Hindu honor killings? Sadly, the answer to that is yes, there are
. So now I'm asking are there enough of them to make it the proper subject of a murder mystery on television when there are plenty of Muslim honor killings even in this country. My answer to that is no; I think that the producers of the TV show were too chicken to mention the truth about way too many followers of the Religion of Peace and so stretched for a substitute with the bonus that the substitute would be acceptable to the Muslims.
Freedom of expression. You gotta just love it.
Also I'm no longer sure that the elimination of dueling is an altogether good thing. But I'm sure that's just me.
