Good week/bad week: venting in Nepal and the trouble of walking dogs

The World

Along with our friends at The Week Magazine, we look at the past week and give you the score. Who had a good week? Who had a bad week? In this week’s segment we learn that it was a great week to vent your frustrations… if you happen to live in Nepal. A ritual in the country allows young people from neighboring villages Parsaway and Lamipur to yell insults at each other as part of an annual festival this week. They say it’s all in good fun.

On the other hand, it was a very bad week for a young London man who tried an unconventional method of dog walking. Paul Railton lost his driver’s license and was charged about $100 when he tried to take his dog for a walk… by driving with a leash out the window.
