Too bad our young Harvard pacifist didn't consider "dowery death" as  
a form of murder. During my tenure in Delhi I read of unexplained  
kitchen explosions almost every day. Curiously only the young wife  
whose parents didn't fork over an addition to the dowery was killed.  
In India guns don't kill people. Propane tanks do.

Not every Harvardian believes that draconic gun laws are the way to  
stop murder. George Bush and Mitt Romney both went to Harvard.

Perhaps we should convince Bostonians to take up photography as a  
hobby. It is a Native American belief that photographing a person  
snatches away a bit of their soul. Take enough pictures of someone  
and you hasten their death. Murder by Leica. That's the ticket.
