A preacher with a minuscule congregation in north Florida threatens to burn a Koran and idiocy ensues.
Would I burn a Koran? No.
Do I care if a Koran gets burned? No.
Do I want the Arab street to dictate the shape of tolerance and the limits of free speech? Hell no.
I'll end this brief post with a word to our political leaders who feel they have to preemptively apologize about this -- STFU already. Americans aren't ashamed of the First Amendment, Terry Jones is an inconsequential lout, and walking on eggs won't keep the Cartoonophobes from blowing a gasket over some perceived slight or another.
Besides, it's not like they have a good track record when it comes to this sort of thing...
Hellooooo visitors from Don Surber.
Feeling like you overdid it on pumpkin pie?
