progress, I guess

Kim Jong-un
Every time I think I've got a handle on the 'craziness' of the world, something comes along to prove my arrogance is unwarranted ... as exemplified by the following, passed along in email:

-- One of North Korea's generals -- its defense chief -- has been executed by anti-aircraft fire. He went to sleep, among other infractions, during one of President Kim Jong-un's addresses.

-- If the story is to be believed, the Islamic State has found a brutal way to punish women who breast-feed their infants in public: the breast biter.
“[T]hey took me to the ‘Hesba’ headquarters in the city, and escorted me to the torture chamber, then they asked me to choose between a whip or a ‘biter’,” the woman told anti-ISIS group A-Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently.
“I did not know what a ‘biter’ was and I thought it is a reduced sentence,” she added. “I was afraid of whipping, so I choose the ‘biter.’”
“They brought a sharp object that has a lot of teeth and held me, placing it on my chest and pressing it strongly,” the young woman, nicknamed Batol to protect her identity, said.
-- And then there's finding out that lace, satin, g-strings and other come-hither lingerie are not just for women any more.
