China has finally called for an end to the barbaric practice of parading
suspected prostitutes and other criminal suspects through the streets,
vowing to enforce laws in a "rational, calm and civilized manner." If
they can't manage that, they should at least include in the so-called
shame parade those truly deserving - say, the executives of BP, Sachs
and Bank of America, pretty much all former Bush White House officials,
every decision-maker on Afghanistan...The list is endless. But let these poor women go.
