Where to start? Florida's uber-wacko, Quran-burning, so-called pastor Terry Jones is in Michigan to hold an anti-Muslim rally to protest the imaginary threat of Sharia law.

You can ignore him, or you can do what Detroit political and religious leaders are doing: Say no way.

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered.

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
