Really strange! Why is the girl tied up? Don't think this would be allowed today, lol!
And looks like he's figuring out the kind of knot rather than releasing her, Kay!
Edie at BellaOnline.com called my attention to the school poster you refer to. Here's my take:The poster is totally inappropriate for a school or public library. It reflects the unfortunate U.S. acceptance and even admiration of crime and criminals. You see this attitude in TV series like Sopranos and Dexter. It's in the advertising--I recall a pistachio ad that showed a gangster breaking the nuts with a man's head, a clothing ad that featured a police line-up, and one with Joan Rivers trying to get some product as if it were an illegal substance and suggesting that she was willing to prostitute herself in order to get it. You see it in headlines that use words like "bust" for" arrest" or "police raid", "tout" for "promote", etc.
