    We see names of terrorists, and we sort the names into patterns.  Ahmed this, al-bin-Something-Or-Another that, oh look, all the terrorists are Muslims!  Bobby Joe this, Billie Sue Something-Or-Another that, oh look, all the terrorists are Southerners!

    But that's the wrong place to look for patterns and it runs the risk of prejudice.  IMHO there's something wonderfully American about that oldschool Southern naming convention, it seems like something unique to our culture, as with the origins of jazz and bluegrass music.  And we shouldn't let a bunch of terrorist arseholes soil it any more than we should let another bunch soil the name of the Prophet Mohammed by attaching it to their own evil deeds.

    "Minus one vote for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.
