And He Thought The Irish Reporter Was Tough

The BBC reports that Shoes thrown at Bush on Iraq trip

A surprise visit by US President George Bush to Iraq has been overshadowed by an incident in which two shoes were thrown at him during a news conference.

An Iraqi journalist was wrestled to the floor by security guards after he called Mr Bush “a dog” and threw his footwear, just missing the president.

The soles of shoes are considered the ultimate insult in Arab culture.

I think he can forget having a street named in his honor.

Not That You Care

I have apparently managed to update to the latest version of WordPress without breaking anything.  You shouldn’t notice much if any difference, but the view in the back-end is very different.

I don’t know if it is good or bad, only that it is definitely different.

I wouldn’t bother with upgrading, except that each iteration tends to be more secure.
