What do Honor Killings and Hollywood Have in Common?

I am not usually one to look to celebrity-types for wisdom, but Joss Whedon — creator of one of the all-time best tv programs, Buffy the Vampire Slayer — has posted an amazing rant in reaction to the infamous cell phone footage of an honor killing in Iraq. It’s worth a read.

(Oh, and I found the link on salon.com, by the way. I mean, I am a huge geek, but not so huge that I frequent a blog about Joss Whedon. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)
