Sikhing Truth

Call me a cynical asshole (you wouldn't be the first), but as nice as is the story of the young Sikh man in Australia who removed his turban to aid a bleeding boy hit by a car, I find the gushing over it a little puzzling. He did a good thing. He did what one would hope anyone would do, religious constraint or not. Maybe that's the point: acts of simple humanity -- maybe especially when religion is involved -- have become unexpected. So I also find it a little sad.

On the lighter side, it reminds me of W.C Fields, and his story of how he, as "Honest John," got his name.
