Legal "Three weeks ago the 23-year-old UK-based administrator of a TV show and movie links site was arrested by police. The site, referred to only as TVShack, could be one of three domains of which two are already controlled by the US government after their seizure as part of Operation in Our Sites. Following his detention in the UK's largest prison, the admin is now fighting his extradition to the U.S. with the help of Gary McKinnon's lawyer." His site only linked; it did not host. The most damning point is that he was found not guilty under UK law. So, does this mean The Netherlands can request extradition of, say, Rick Santorum for his blatant anti-homosexual remarks, which are illegal under Dutch law? That would be fun.

I may also add that Mahatma Gandhi was a notorious pedophile. He also hated Black (African) people and generally supported the Indian caste system. Again this is all fully documented.

We should never make heroes of mere mortals.

The only support for this argument I can find is a Penn and Teller episode (that I havent watched).

Or believe everything you see on TV.
Btw, who should we make heroes of if not mere mortals? Imaginary persons? The only real heroes are mortals.

The real heroes are always dead... hm, maybe there could be some place for the UNdead? (and, if you think about it, quite many people do worship ~such - I guess at least some see them as ~heroes; thought they would also fall under "imaginary")
