Outrage

Outrage
: I’m catching up on my blog reading (that seems to be my new Friday ritual) and I get to Zeyad a few days late on the terrorism in Iraq:

The shameful silence must end. Where are the cries of outrage from the Arab and Islamic world? Where is the condemnation and denunciation? Where are the fatwas? Where is the seething and shaking fists? Or are these preserved for other people?

: John Cole:

The government had no case that Martha Stewart did what they actually accused her of, but was convicted of trying to keep the government from proving that she did nothing wrong, and for that she could spend the rest of her life in jail.
