Perhaps the Australians and British will put their college administrators in charge of solving the problem.
UPDATE: Thanks to Pseudo-Polymath for the link.
UPDATE: One weeps to think that Britain once produced Charles James Napier:
"Be it so. This burning of widows is your custom; prepare the funeral pile. But my nation has also a custom. When men burn women alive we hang them, and confiscate all their property. My carpenters shall therefore erect gibbets on which to hang all concerned when the widow is consumed. Let us all act according to national customs."
Today's Britain built gibbets to hang those who'd interfere with widow buring.
