Good lord.

 I didn't know Alan was doing this but I guess it doesn't surprise me. It
generates a lot of talk though doesn't it? Seems like it would make a good
classroom discussion.
(Although, I tried to get my CORE class to discuss the violence over the
Danish cartoons of Muhammed and I got a lot of shrugging - like, what's the
big deal? So maybe I'm not a judge of what makes for a good classroom
discussion. It seemed like Worlds Colliding to me.)

I tried to look at all the comments to see if we knew anyone but I ran out
of steam.

On purely aesthetic grounds the thought of this sort of thing makes me
cringe. I can hear the dialogue in my head and I know I'd be mumbling and
swearing to myself as I went along, mentally re-inserting the original.
