An Actual News-Related Entry!

I don't do this very often, but when I find something this good, I like to share it. New Yorkers may already have seen it, since it was published in yesterdays New York Times. And, since it is by Salman Rushdie, it will probably be syndicated to other papers as well. In case you aren't lucky enough to have one of those papers, go to the Times web site to read Yes, This Is About Islam. For me, an article about Islam by Rushdie carries a lot more weight than anything by a person who is not part of Muslim culture.

Time Warning: The Times web site makes articles available for free only for seven days from the date they were published, so don't delay.
