Hoping for Sunflowers

Peaktalk has two interesting posts on yesterday’s other big story – the murder of Theo Van Gogh in Amsterdam. It’s way too early to tell, but the US election coupled with the filmmaker’s tragic death may work in symbiosis as a wake-up call for Old Europe. Where better place to start than Magnificent Amsterdam?

UPDATE: Authorities in Amsterdam are reporting the arrests of eight “Islamic radicals” with respect to the murder.
