A House Divided That Still Stands! Does Wesley Powell Serve As An Example That The Ignorance Of Prejudice Still Remains?
Divorce shatters lives. It splits homes. Sometimes literally. A Cambodian couple who separated after 40 years of marriage literally split their household in two. (The husband cut the house in half!) The story has been written by May Titthara for The Phnom Penh Post, an English- newspaper in Cambodia. The remaining half of the house is in Prey Veng province of southern Cambodia. Reportedly, the husband and his friends moved his belongings to one side of the house and sawed off the other side. The divorce did not follow the appropriate steps but was effective nonetheless. The wife continues to reside in her half of the home.
On a less pleasant note, a reader has sent in a link to a police video in which the officer apparently makes some racial derogatory comments. Just when you think society has outgrown such distasteful behavior. The Georgia police officer, Wesley Powell, resigned after authorities discovered the profanity, sexual comments and racial slurs. For those interested here is the link: OFFENSIVE COMMENTS.
