Pakistan's Transgender Tax Collectors

    In this very conservative Islamic country a flamboyant transgender tax collector often provides an extra incentive to make prompt payment.

   From the CNN article:

"We followed them as they visit a series of electrical appliance shops. The first debtor insists there's been a mistake and the bill's been paid. The second is less amenable, so the team threaten to come back 24 hours later, half a dozen strong -- and dance in the shop. That just may be enough to get a tax bill settled."
