I’ve been pursuing various strategies for getting more Cylert, which will be duly reported here. In the meantime, I was feeling morose. Lo, Divine Providence sent me Alec Rawls, for a restorative round of foolkilling.
Some of you may recall a post here last September about wingnuts who object to the design for the Flight 93 Memorial on the grounds that it’s a crescent (it isn’t) which points toward Mecca (it doesn’t). You’d have thought they’d have moved on by now, right? They haven’t. Alec Rawls is still preaching and elaborating this bizarre idea, slandering the designer, and bringing distress to the families of the crash victims.
TBogg noted this in his weblog. Discussion followed. About a dozen messages in, Alec Rawls himself showed up, and the fireworks started. The thread, now fizzling out, makes a lively read. One seldom sees such unanimity of opinion in an open forum. It was Alec Rawls contra mundum all the way.
