TEN THOUSAND WORDS
an image, no matter how effective in it’s intended Primary mode, can raise questions of a secondary nature. No? Here, a courageous cutie is quoted as stepping between an irate thug and his victim—
—which is all very brave, commendable, desirable, admirable, laudable and other such stuff.

And the shot achieves its ends—
a) mindless (Christian?) EDL thug = NIL
b) courageous Islamic cutie = WIN
MY OWN FURTHER QUESTIONs:

- Would she have dared do it if the nice policeman hadn’t been there?
Yup. Definitely more here than meets the eye … but she certainly does have a truly lovely smile …

** Okay, stoning …
*** Not mine, dammit—their’s
