That essay by Mark Steyn is getting a lot of play. A lot of folks find it better than a cold beer after a hot day working in the yard. Just what I needed, they say. Amen, brother.
Neal Boortz was practically drooling. (And I didn't even get to listen to the main hour, I had to report to work.) His program notes don't make any reference to the essay, which was apparently picked up by the WSJ. According to the notes he slept in. My guess is that the Mark Steyn essay was so juicy that he knew he could do an easy program from that platform alone.
QD at Southern Appeal (I stole the post headline) makes good observations including...
...the “soft decadent” culture of the West, replete with its consumerism, hedonism, and all that jazz is both soft and decadent AND powerful and enticing. For every nutcase who decides that Allah wants him to strap some dynamite on his chest, I’d bet there are a thousand who think Allah wants him to strap himself into his new Opel so he doesn’t get hurt on his way home from work.
Sorry. The essay still strikes me as more divisive than enlightening. Kinda like talk radio. Big on entertainment and short on content.
