The Amish up close

This is literally something you don’t see every day: the Amish. Typically, the Amish don’t like to have themselves photographed but the Associated Press was invited this week to a picnic to honor several members of an Ohio community heading to prison for hate crime convictions for hair- and beard-cutting attacks against fellow Amish.

    I have sometimes thought the Amish have the right idea as far as how to live, but the haircuts are a deal breaker.
