Kissing up to Delaware Muslims

Evoking memories of racist Southern sheriffs hunting black people with vicious, snarling dogs and fire hoses,  Governor Markell has met with local Muslims to deliver this message:  "We love and respect you, and please forgive any future incidents in which we might be mean to you, act violent, or hurt your feelings.  We apologize in advance, just  in case."

As far as I know, no-one is disturbing the Muslims of  Delaware.  So the Governor is pro-actively meeting with them, in case some future Delaware resident frowns at one of them or asks a Muslim why he/she is wearing something funny-looking on his or her head.

I have not read any news bulletins about Governor Markell meeting with Chinese American residents of Delaware, deeply regretting the absence of chopsticks in local eating places and assuring them that we all know they are patriotic even though they don't eat with knives and forks.

Why doesn't he find something constructive to do, like sorting his sock drawer, or solving crossword puzzles?

He's just trying to keep from being assassinated. The Chinese aren't likely to hunt him down over a perceived slight to Buddha.

Wondering Miriam, if you've received email from Google re new policy taking effect on March 23:

"...we'll no longer allow blogs that contain sexually explicit or graphic nude images or video. We'll still allow nudity presented in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts, or where there are other substantial benefits to the public from not taking action on the content."

You've probably never done this anyway but, then, neither has another blog friend I know who got it. Wonder if it's some sort of advance concern about what FCC might enjoin in future?

I didn't receive it, but nothing would surprise me.

According to Drudge they retracted it after a surge of customer complaints. Apparently it was not government-inspired.
