Muhammad the bear…

For those of you who don’t know, there has been an event in the last month or so that really seems to have lit a fire under my ass. A UK teacher in the Sudan was arrested and sentenced to as much as six months in jail and fourty lashes, assumably not with a wet noodle. All of this has occurred because she allowed her students to name a teddy bear Muhammad, which happened to also be the name of a student in the class, as well as quite a large few other people in the world less worthy of such a distinguished name.

She has been pardoned, and hopefully she has left the country.
