Strange World Department

In Austria they have condemned an English man to three years in prison for "denying the Holacaust." (actually, he claims that the majority of deaths in the Nazi death camps were from typhus. Wrong, but not libelous, you would think. Next they will say that they can throw you in prison for saying that Gypsies and Poles were victims.) In Denmark, a cartoonist depicts Jesus Christ as a murderer (actually, Muhammad, but, hey, what's the difference?).

I am not justifying either practice in any way. I think both men are jerks. Its just that....

We live in a strange world.
