Beer gets model arrested

Posted by jtsmyth8 on August 19, 2009

That’s all it took, one beer. A model (Muslim) was sentenced to 6 strokes by cane for having a beer at a bar in Pahang (Singapore). Under Islamic law she will be the first woman in Malaysia to be caned. Kartika Sari Dewi Shukarno, 32, pleaded guilty to the charges and was also fined 1,414 dollars. That’s one expensive beer! I hope it was the best beer ever!

The brave mother of 2 returned to Perak after learning of the warrant out for her arrest. Quite ridiculous in this day in age, however many still cling to outdated religious beliefs. Who am I to question what is right for others to believe? However it should be important to note that we used to stone people we thought were witches. At what point do we revisit time honored traditions and beliefs? (link)

  4. Great headline. If your cookie has a bite-sized action and your reader completes the action, I think two things happen. Their self-confidence goes up (which feels good) and their trust in you increases.
