A Mind That Suits What doesn't kill me, makes me laugh... usually.

Tuesday, May 17, 2005 :::
Regular readers will know that A Mind That Suits has complained that we do not seem to be acquiring an intuitive understanding of Islam analogous to the one conservatives had for communism during the Cold War. The horrors unleashed by the irresponsible Newsweek story about our soldiers' flushing the parts of the Qu'ran down the toilet are inexcusable for two reasons: Newsweek seems to have understood it was inflammatory in some sense, but went ahead with it on flimsy grounds. Much worse was the as-yet unnamed Pentagon official who vetted the story and reacted to other parts of it, but not that. Anyone with even the mildest exposure to Muslims would understand what a powderkeg it was, and would ask questions about it, but he did not. Whoever it was, deserves to be fired.

A propos of nothing: "Work smarter, not harder." Good concept, but have you ever noticed how the guy who says it first is usually a lazy ass?
