Where's Alanis Morrisette when you need her?

From the Daily Telegraph: "New York man Muzzammil Hassan founded pro-Islam station Bridges TV five years ago to combat the negative public image of Muslims. He is currently under arrest for beheading his wife."

As many have pointed out, rain on your wedding day isn't irony (unless, perhaps, the bride or the groom is a meteorologist); I think this qualifies, though. The link shows a lovely photo of the couple, before the beheading, of course, and the wife is dressed nicely, head and face visible, not the stereotype of "fanatics" or "terrorists"... but after she filed for divorce, apparently he felt he had the right to behead her.
