Felon Congressmen?

No, it's not Traficant; it's Dara Singh, in jail for burning alive Australian missionary Graham Staines and his two young sons five years ago. He's defiantly unrepentant and on the ballot, running in the frequently-violently nationalist Hindu Mahasabha party.

I'm still looking forward to my trip (in three weeks!), but very glad I'm only spending two days in Bombay, with friends, and the rest in the relatively non-violent (or at least vastly more religiously tolerant and mob-violence- and riot-free) South.
