Lileks disses the “Koran desecration” meme

You really, really ought to make sure you catch James Lileks’ new feature, Screedblog. A sample of today’s rant:

“..Not to say we should treat the Qur’an with casual disrespect. But if an infidel touches the book with the wrong hand and people react like a two-year-old whose peas are touching the mashed potatoes, well, I understand why this matters, but when measured against the sins of headchoppery and carbombs, it pales to an evanescent translucence…”

I think you understate the case a bit, James, but then, there’s more where that came from, so at second thought, maybe you don’t.
