2007-07-31 The Brief

            Are There Holy Texts in Your Toilet?: Well let’s hope not as a student at Pace University in New York was arrested on two hate-crimes charges after surveillance videos linked him to acts of flushing Qur’ans down a toilet.  Foreign Policy covers the story here and the original Newsday article is available here.

            Who Needs Captain Planet anymore?: If you have watched anything on TV, turned on the computer, or picked up a newspaper in the last year then you should know that saving the planet is all the rage.  Der Spiegel provides a lengthy article discussing the recent rush to save the planet.  Call me a pessimist but I wonder how much is about charity and how much is about turning a profit.

            Walking with Giants: World Magazine profiles the recently opened creation museum in northern Kentucky, which I need to go and visit sometime soon.
