I read that these days British children get good sport out of roaming about at midnight looking for innocent passers by to kick to death. They apparently call it 'happy slapping.' I am delighted we are helping the Iraqis build a similar, civilised democracy. mybe i'm just a stick in the mud, within a couple of years happy slapping will be as well-loved as previous teenage crazes such as hula-hoops or frisbees. guess i gotta move with the times man. Merry Christmas.
