Hello Josh, my take is that the muslim madness is entirely a media creation. Case in point: as I type in downtown San Diego the Convention Center - the premier venue in town and a major civic leader - is hosting the San Diego Islamic Center Ramadan Celebration. Large crowds of muslims of all ages and nationalities are walking down the streets, spilling out into the Gaslamp District, dressed in robes and exotic outfits with some women in burkas. Local media are present and who knows what spin they will put on it. All I can see is that is a peaceful happy crowds with kids and no one is worked up about it here. Will any national news feature this tonight?
