Better Angels

"...all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature." ---Abraham Lincoln, First Innaugural Address

Who's writing this war? John Waters?

So I was reading Newsweek's little story on the Green Zone, when this line stopped me in my tracks:
"Sheik Fuad Rashid, the U.S.-appointed imam of the local mosque, dresses like a nun, dyes his hair platinum blond and claims that Mary Mother of Jesus appeared to him in a vision (hence the getup)."

Hello? Is this not a story all by itself?

The San Francisco Chronicle thought so. The highlight has to be the picture. He's...fabulous!
