Juan Williams Purged By NPR

National Public Radio has fired Juan Williams for remarks on Bill O'Reilly's show on Fox that, "were inconsistent with our editorial standards and practices, and undermined his credibility as a news analyst with NPR."

He apparently held the clearly reactionary belief that some Muslims considered themselves at war with the US and the West.  Did he not understand that the politically correct line is that random persons in the world hate the West and that there is absolutely no connection to Islam, despite the repeated claims of these uniformly Muslin persons that they are acting in the name of Islam?

Radio Free Canada NPR leans strides forward.

Hilarious Photographic Moments from The Ryder Cup

During the Ryder Cup golf tournament in Wales, Tiger Woods apparently badly hit a ball in the muddy, crowd-tromped rough that headed directly into a photographer's lens.

I particularly liked the expression of the gentleman on the right with the bad mustache and the cigar.  [Be sure to click on the photo to see a larger version, to get the full effect]  So did someone else.  When I noted this to my son, he replied with a link to this picture:

Unfortunately the link doesn't provide a source that I would happily credit.  The maker of this photo is a photoshoping genius.  Thank you for making my day.

Update: By the way, could Cigar Guy be the illegitimate spawn of Jerry Colonna?
