It's Shoe-tastic

Is Shoe-gate turning into way too big of a story, in many ways yes. Although the outpouring of support for the shoe thrower, Muntadar al-Zaidi, goes to show that many in the Arab world consider it a just send off for the man who laid waste to the cradle of civilization (everybody's, not just their's).

I'm sure there are other stories that deserve our attention, and as such I promise not to bring it up again (unless of course something interesting happens, like the shoes get sold for millions of dollars).

All that being said, there are street demonstrations in suport of the shoe thrower and there are also rumors and reports that he is being mis-treated in custody. While I genuinely hope that isn't true at this point I certainly wouldn't be surprised. The bottome line there is have we learned nothing?

And yes of course the mashups are here...
