"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Muslims - Outrage, or Outrageous?

OK. I can't ignore it. You've all heard about the furor in the Muslim world about the cartoons depicting Mohammed. You've heard about the boycotts of European goods, burning of European embassies in several countries and the death threats. Here is a link thru Yahoo to information about these cartoons in case you haven't been connected in the last week or so. You can even find the cartoons on line if you search a bit.

I will not state my thoughts here (partly because I'm still trying to comprehend it all and to 'see through' the media coverage), but I will invite all of our readers to do so. Pro or con - have at it. Just try to avoid the insults and stick to 'fair argument', OK? Maybe we can all learn a little something if we try.
