Progressive Pie

I jumped to conclusions, for when I heard that Carl Levin had been attacked by a pie-wielding protester in Michigan, I assumed that it had been one of those crazed right-wing zealots that we hear so much about.

You know the ones. The ones that shout racial epitaphs at black congressmen. The ones that deliver death threats to politicians. The ones that spit. The ones that mean spiritedly call for Muslims to forgo their plans to build a mosque of triumph on the same plot of land where the landing gear of Mohammad Atta's plane came tumbling down.

Then I discovered the truth.


Maybe Ahlam M. Mohsen should build a pie stand in a dark corner of the Pepper's Cafe and Deli.
