Officially Sanctioned Human Sacrifice, Or What?

I don't think the Mayans and Aztecs and many other civilizations had a corner on the human sacrifice game--I think we need to look closer to home.

No need to read. Just look at the photo.

Eck. I got that photo sent to me in a group of photos as a joke. I think I still have them. The others were uh, along the same vein.(g)

At least with the Aztecs they didn't feel it was murder-- they believed heavily in reincarnation. Not that it helps me understand any more...

Johnny's point about disguising human sacrifice from the modern psyche by understanding it in terms of dangerous sport mishaps is well taken. After all, when tv networks promo upcoming races, many of them have crashes in the footage--as if this were something being promised in the advertising.

There has also been talk of television executions in states that have the death penalty.

And what is Iraq but the saddest human sacrifice that I've seen since Vietnam?
