Cultural Differences

I couldn’t help being struck this morning by the juxtaposition of these two stories.

  1. Navy SEALs who captured a most-wanted terrorist are being court-martialed for allegedly giving him a bloody lip in the process.  Isn’t assault what the military is, you know, for?
  2. Saudi Arabia has sentenced a TV host to death for witchcraft. He was visiting from Lebanon and sometimes makes predictions on his show.

I can think of one thing we have in common with the Saudis: we’re both completely insane.
