I cringe at the way news media tries to foist a human angle onto stories by giving everyone an occupation, no matter how tenuous and irrelevant. 'Former nun.' So she used to be a nun, but she isn't any more. (Maybe when they asked her occupation they just mis-spelled 'none'.)So the only possible relevance being a nun (sorry, ex-nun) could have to the story is that she's naturally weak-minded enough to forgive her brother's assailants.The headline should be re-written "Person of questionable judgement forgives sword-wielding people of questionable judgement who maimed a male person of possibly better judgement, although clearly not enough to avoid getting his hand chopped off."Make it so, New Zealand Herald!
that headline's too long I'm afraid. Next.
No, I think if they went with Rustys headline they could forgo the actual story, making more space for something more interesting, like an ad for ASB or a picture of a rabbit.

I'm pretty sure I've found out what James has been doing with his time since he stopped updating here.http://bobparkerengineeredthechchquake.blogspot.com/
The initial earthquake was only five days ago.Surely James would have had enough time to engineer the bloody quake himself by now.
