Fly the Colors at Half-Mast

For the fallen at Fort Hood. The wire reports indicate the shooter was some kind of a nut and reportedly refused to be photographed with women. It is no small irony that the police officer who dropped him (while taking three rounds herself) was a diminitive woman whose nickname from her first job as a cop was "Mighty Mouse", according to the AP.

Yips! from Robbo: Y'know, I had been mulling a joke post in which the White House announces that this year Veteran's Day will be changed to Hug A Muslim Day in order to dispel any notion that the massacre was at all religiously motivated and, more importantly, to protect Muslim-Americans - the real victims of this tragedy - from the backlash vengeance of all those knuckle-dragging Red State Neanderthals out there. (You remember how the redneck posses rampaged through the land after 9/11, turning honorable Islamists out of their homes, razing them to the ground and sowing the land with salt.) The punchline was going to be that if we weren't careful, we would quickly starting treating our Muslim population like......Jews.

But I decided to drop it because it was so damn close to the spin being put on things that I reckoned most readers wouldn't realize it was meant to be parody.

I've got to say this: On Friday I was listening to one of the Christian talk radio stations and was frankly appalled that a Christian said "We shouldn't allow Muslims in our military." Isn't that a bit narrow minded?
