Beheadings this year’s school shootings

The latest issue of Time magazine features an exclusive report on what’s hot and what’s not for Summer ‘04, and it’s no surprise that Middle East Decapitations have everyone talking. They’re all the rage as we head into the hot summer months, and their popularity has prompted more than one reporter to dub them “this year’s school shootings”. Said one middle school social outcast in the article , “If I were going to shoot people at school, I wouldn’t just shoot them, I’d behead some of them, and videotape it, and put it on the internet.” Look for celebrity decapitations to heat up the news in July and August, and new beheading-based reality-TV programs to be ready for network prime-time this Fall.
