Dateline: Nepal—A Far Eastern goddess has been stripped of her divinity for visiting the United States. Ten-year-old Sajani Shakya was installed at the age of 2 as Kumari of the ancient town of Bhaktapur, near Katmandu. The position made her one of Nepal’s top three goddesses, revered by both Hindus and Buddhists, reports London’s Daily Mirror. But a recent trip to promote a U.K.-made documentary on Nepal’s traditions and political turmoil has upset local religious leaders, who believe the Western visit tainted the Kumari’s purity. “It is wrong and against tradition for her to go on a foreign tour without permission,” Bhaktapur temple official Jai Prasad Regmi said. “We will search for new Kumari and install her as the living goddess.” The Kumari are virgin goddesses believed to inhabit human form until menstruation.
[RE:Letters, “What Courage?” July 5-11] Kathleen Parker, the name of our law-breaking attorney general is Alberto, not Anthony, Gonzales. Sen. Patrick Leahy and other Democrats have shown political courage in issuing subpoenas in their ongoing investigation of his corrupt Department of Justice. Officials have resigned. It has become known that the department has been packed with young graduates of Regent University, a right-wing Christian school, such as Monica Goodling, who admitted that former U.S. Attorney Tim Griffin was "caging" voters, i.e. illegally removing voters (especially blacks and soldiers) from voter rolls to suppress the Democratic vote. Tim Griffin has since resigned. Rep. John Conyers is also strongly pursuing this case.
