    I love this story in the New York Times. Some kids in the states have started adopting (albeit on Facebook) “Hussein” as their middle name to show solidarity for a name that the right-wingers are trying their best to to use perniciously. Heh.

      Wow, that is a wonderful story. Thanks for posting it, Sunny! It makes me feel all warm inside - which is exactly what I need after the latest issue of Private Eye. Damn, if I drank, it would’ve had me heading for a Scotch on the rocks - but this’ll do instead.

      One can only wonder how many of these, ‘kids,’ will actually vote.

      ‘We are all Hussein’- it sounds so much like a Shi’a slogan.

      Bring it on.
