Meanwhile, in Indian/Pakistani cricket news...

Times of India:
"MUMBAI: After targeting Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan for his remarks supporting the inclusion of Pakistani cricketers in the IPL, the Shiv Sena Saturday dragged in Aamir Khan, calling the duo "2 Idiots"."
What does that mean? Well, as far as I can tell, it means a rich & famous Indian cricket team owner is getting extreme heat from other Indians because he is willing to have Pakistani players on the professional cricket team he owns.

The political Left in the U.S. tries to convince Americans we are bigoted people; we are somehow less 'tolerant' than other 'cultures'. This is the opposite of the truth. Semi-official, and even official, bigotry (religious, national, tribal, etc.) is well-entrenched and acceptable in much of the rest of the world. In my experience people in the U.S. are just about the least bigoted on the planet today.
