Mediocre article in the American Spectator
criticizing Kerry for his support of Aristide. While Kerry's support of Aristide is of course interesting in light of what a thug the latter became, this bit made me swallow my gum:
Aristide was a known inciter of "necklacing," the practice of throwing flaming tires around opponents' heads.
While this sounds like a somewhat interesting sport, one would suppose it would be quite challenging and dangerous to the thrower as well as the throwee. Of course the actual sport is a little less, err, sporting
Necklacing refers to throwing a rubber tire over a victim’s neck, dousing it with gasoline and igniting it thus burning the victim to death.
