Ugh. The world news is just more and more depressing. This is not a political blog, though, so I will leave it alone here. Still, in the subject of “recommended Reading,” I’d like to point people to a very illuminating article from last week’s Washington Post. Have you seen this? It’s an editorial by Flemming Rose, the editor of that Danish newspaper that started the ruckus with those infamous Mohammed cartoons.
Regardless of your position on the subject, this is a thoughtful and articulate article that really clarifies the issues and offers much-needed back-story on how and why the cartoons came to be published.
