Hitchhiking kills! In this case it's news because it's Turkey (first thought that comes to mind is a certain religion cum culture).
The number of women that have disappeared , or their bodies have been found, after hitching rides here in Canada, would boggle your minds. The link is to one stretch of highway in a remote area of B.C.
The woman was fulfilling a death wish.


first thought that comes to mind is a certain religion cum culture

Religion is culture. The dumb cow would have stood less chance among Africans whatever their religion, than among Muslims whatever thir race.

Keep it real and honest.


It actually puts me in mind of a fairy story like Grimm's The Robber Bride - the foolish bride on her way to her death.

European Children's literature is full of naive innocents who either come to harm or escape by good fortune and their wits, the moral usually being 'all that glitters is not gold' or simply 'there are bad people in the world'.

Alas the poor girl was obviously never told about the Gods of the Copybook Headings.



ppp; I'm pretty sure that was my point. Not sure why you quoted me(?)...
I was simply pointing out that had it been any other (non-Islamic)country, the news item wouldn't have seen daylight. "Stupid Woman Dies"
I doubt that Darwin Awards would even have picked it up.
