The ticket concentrated on the name "Beefy Miracle" and how the slaughter of
cattle goes against the sensibilities of many people within India...
reflected not just in some of the religons there but also in the secular
laws and basic culture.

I'm understating the case that was made here as I don't want to raise the
emotional level of this conversation.  The ticket did an admirable job of
keeping the inherent emotionalness of the subject separate from the
analytics of the naminbg process.  I just don't trust that I can do as good
a job :-)
