File this under the “sad, sad irony” category: the reigning “Miss Deaf Texas” was killed this week by a speeding train, when she failed to hear its warning horn.
And here is a useful take on the Danish cartoon thingy, an article called “The Right To Ridicule.”
But while the anti-Muslim set goes on with their crusade to supposedly defend papers’ rights to free speech, let’s look at this little gem of a news item. The Pennsylvania Attorney General has seized a newspaper’s computers as part of an investigation into who in the government is leaking info to reporters! This strikes me as a much more serious business than any cartoon nonsense. If there was a leak, then it should be investigated at the source, not the destination. It’s the press’s job to accept any and all leaks. This is what whistleblowers’ protection laws are all about. Geez Louise.
