The Shoes Heard & Seen 'Round the World

Virtually everyone has seen this "send-off" for Bush's "Victory Tour". Now the shoe-thrower's become a folk hero to much of the Middle East, and no doubt elsewhere, although he faces possible criminal prosecution. He's got the best defense in the country, apparently, though - lawyers were lining up to get the job. And the likely charge would be defaming a public figure, the punishment of which could set him back what's described as a "small fine". Small price for such a big impression...

Dubya got a real kick out of this. In Saddam's day this reporter would have been fed to the plastic shredder, after watching his wife and daughters get gang-raped.

All real freedom starts with freedom of speech. Without freedom of speech there can be no real freedom.
