Some stuff to read while I work on other things:
Christopher Hitchens on Iraq.
Max Boot on Koran abuse.
And finally, Mark Steyn.
One other thing. Louis Wu emailed yesterday to say, “The solution to the problem of the desecrated Qurans? Take them away.”
Hithchens: AI’s Broken Moral Compass
As an ex-member of Amnesty International I can only say ‘aye’ to Christopher Hitchens in Slate:About Amnesty International’s disgraceful performance, however, I can tell as well as ask. I was at one point quite close to its London headquarters, and…
Don’t they have those damn things memorized anyway?
The only thing I’d like Christopher hitchins to be on is a rockship to Mars.
Ken, A lot of them do have it memorized; taking that into consideration, wouldnt the execution style shootings of Iraqi policemen and the beheading of muslim Aid and relief workers also be considered as desecration?
Wow. Louis Wu must know what he’s talking about, seeing as how he won’t be born for several centuries yet. Does he have any messages for us from Nessus or Chmee? (Hint).
Kidding aside, I think he has a point.
Oh sure Stephen, put up 3 links, while you’re busy with “home improvement” stuff. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge. Say no more.

That would be :anti-muslim”
That cannot be tolerated!
Via VodkaPundit I found this recent Hitchens article. I am going to see him this Friday with a friend of mine. Should be interesting. I’m looking forward to it. I’ll fill you all in after the event. I wonder if I can take pictures?…
JohnL – That was my first thought also. Although I read “Ringworld” many years ago. Thanks for the reminder. Best, Terry
Nice pop-up farm that guy works for. Hope he gets paid by the ad.
POLITICS: And The Horse You Rode In On
Hilarious if depressing Mark Steyn column on bad policing in Britain. (via Vodkapundit)…
The Koran situation seems a tad bit tedious. When Sunni’s blow themselves up, do they have a Koran on their person? Also, when Sunni’s, or any other degenerate sect blow up a Mosque, are not Korans being blown up too? Just a thought
