Letters from the Lunar Outpost

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.
- Mark Twain, American Humorist and Writer (1835-1910)

Anti-American Protester Killed by His Own Hate

In an apparent case of red, white and blue revenge, a Pakistani protester died yesterday after inhaling smoke from a burning American flag during an anti-US rally. Abdullah Ismail succumbed at Mayo Hospital in Lahore a day after attending the fierce protest at the city’s Mall Road, where an estimated 10,000 people rallied.

Witnesses said Ismail had complained of feeling ill after breathing fumes from burning flags, Pakistan’s Express Tribune reported.
