The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Using Any Excuse

Whether it's Salman Rushdie or Kashmir or Valentine's Day... or apparently, Julian Assange, the quiet citizens of Pakistan seem to have only one reaction:

Is Pakistan really a country full of angry-faced peasants who spend 99% of their time finding random flags to burn?

Judging by the photo wire coverage of that country, I'd have to say that all signs point to "yes."

Too bad the photograph was published by the wire service I wouldn't mind seeing on fire, otherwise I'd be able to show it to you directly.
