A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.
Tuesday, February 19, 2002 Idiot of the day: Columbia University literature professor Edward Said weighs in with this doozy in an online discussion group:
The slogan "NYC, Terror Free" worries me. To throw anyone out of New York would be unjust. The cycle of hostilities since September 11th have (sic) spun out of control.

Don't let the door hit you in the butt on the way out.
