What Did I JUST Say...

Considering my last post, these two news items just seem to fit in horribly well, don't they?

"A Northwest Side man has been charged with plotting to bomb a strip of crowded Wrigleyville night spots around the time people were leaving a Dave Matthews concert at the ballpark over the weekend. Sami Samir Hassoun, 22, of the 4700 block of North Kedzie Avenue, was arrested as he placed a backpack containing what he thought were high-explosives in a trash can in front of Sluggers on Clark Street, about a block south of Wrigley Field, according to the FBI." - LINK

"Sonia Nassery Cole knew that shooting a movie on location in Afghanistan could get her killed. The most vivid reminder came a few weeks before filming, she said, when militants located her leading actress and cut off both of her feet." - LINK


Hmm, it seems that neither one of these news stories is going to get ANYWHERE the coverage that one yahoo down in Florida got for threatening to burn Korans.

Funny, that.

Yeah, I know, the last item was not someone in America who had her feet cut off. I guess that its irrevelevant to that whole "irrational fear" thing I was speaking off, right?
