Show of hands -- how many remember my writing about Terry Jones? No, not the Monty Python alumnist. He's awesome. I'm talking about Pastor Terry Jones, an intolerant dipshit in Gainesville, Florida. He was the guy who was going to commemorate 9/11 last year by burning the Quran, the Islamic holy book. Public pressure was huge, and he caved.
Or so we thought.
Turns out that he held a mock trial at his Dove World Outreach Center. Which was followed by that classic Christian standby, a book burning.
As our planet spun onward into the bright and hopeful new millenium.
