Peace Be Upon Him

The reaction to Pope Benedict's good-saying re Islam and violence has been, well, violent. Example pics here.

Friend Andy Martin has summed up worldwide dialogue on the issue thusly:

"You stutter."

"N-n-n-n. N-n-n-n. N-n-no I don't."

There you have it, in a nutshell. Stutterers are given to violence. You heard it here first.
