Viva Oriana!

If someone writes a real “Profiles in Courage” for our difficult times, few deserve a better place in it than Oriana Fallaci – author of such powerful works as Man and Letter to a Child Never Born. Now she is being sued by the Muslim Union of Italy for her book The Force of Reason. What an outrageous assault on open expression and the flow of ideas. Time for the Mainstream Media to stand up in her defense. Newsweek? New York Times? Let’s see those editorials in favor of free speech by one of the great journalists of our era. We’re waiting.
