The Hateful Circus Comes to Town But Shoots Itself In the Foot

Abby Zimet

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. He came "in peace" but brought his .40 caliber handgun anyway. Said gun went off in his car. It killed his floorboard and any semblance of sense in any of this. You can ignore him, or you can do what Detroit political and religious leaders are doing: Say no way.
