Stop the Machismo !

Quote of the Day from wife-beater Sanjay Kumar after The
Protection of Women Against Domestic Violence Act
took effect in India :

"It's a noose around my neck and the end of the rope is

in her hands, to pull or not to pull," he complained, as he

and his wife, Maheshwari – still badly bruised – attended

a compulsory marriage counselling

clinic in Delhi.
"Men have no power left. At this rate, we'll be wearing bangles."

So here comes the counter-response by the macho losers :

they form the All-India Harassed Husbands Association !

Brad Pitt were in the news for the wrong reasons
Thursday after they allegedly manhandled some people

accompanied by heavy security (of course), stopped in at
a beauty salon and a club where Danny frequently jammed,
(probably Indigo)

here's a link to Yahoo re: filming progress of Jolie's new
movie based on an adaptation
of Mariane Pearl's book,
"A Mighty Heart:
The Brave Life and Death
of My Husband Danny Pearl."

Here's a link to the coverage by Rediff where
