    What a heartless, ineffective way to treat a beautiful, sweet teenage girl who had just lost her mother. My wife had this happen just a few days ago on March 28th. No wonder that their culture as been in the toilet for the last several centuries.–Tom Reilly

      Thanks, Tom. I think that this kind of experience happens in many countries, including the US.
