I don’t like to stray too far from the cannabis topic here on the Stash, but this little bit of news from Iraq caught my eye:
BBC NEWS | Middle East | Iraq rally for Bush shoe attacker
An Iraqi official was quoted by the Associated Press as saying that the journalist was being interrogated to determine whether anybody paid him to throw his shoes at President Bush.
He was also being tested for alcohol and drugs, and his shoes were being held as evidence, said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity.
Really? Throwing your shoes (the greatest insult in Arabic culture) at George W. Bush is probable cause for a drug test? You really think an Iraqi man would have to be bribed, drunk, or high to express anger and disgust at George W. Bush? If you ask me, it was one of the finest displays of rational and sane action I’ve seen in some time.
