Adding on to the Pauline Kael post last night, I’m honestly baffled by the entire “mosque at ground zero” nonsense. I find it completely insane. Aside from the fact that it is actually a community center in Manhattan and not a mosque at ground zero, I simply don’t understand why anyone outside of that three-four block radius of NYC gives two hoots in hell. Even if they were actually building a mosque at ground zero, and it was funded by Al Qaeda radicals and not some moderate group, I can’t think of one way in which it would have an impact on my life. Hell, if anything, it would make it easy for the FBI to keep track of Al Qaeda, because the Fox News camera live broadcasting 24/7 would have everyone on tape.

This is most excellent.
