Another Reason to Not Panic
It makes you friggin' stoopid.
(We have got a definite theme going on here today.)
I saw the story about the guy who ran over pedestrians in San Francisco yesterday on Blognonymous. Kvatch is a cyclist in SF, and knows how dangerous the streets are because of careless and reckless drivers. (And is he pissed.)
I even noted the name of the driver, Ohmeed Aziz Popal, and thought momentarily, "Oh great, someone's going to have rude things to say about Muslims."
But I had no idea.
As I learned at Mahablog, the righties, particularly Malkin, are crawling all over themselves trying to make connections to anti-Jewish Middle Eastern Muslim whatever terrorism. There was apparently a couple of Jewish temples and community centers nearby as Popal indiscriminately ran over men, women, children, Blacks, Whites, and Asians. But as Maha and commenter Steve M. of No More Mr. Nice Blog point out, one of the attacks took place right outside the Cal-Mart Bakery on California, which proves Popal hates sourdough bread. For which he should be executed.

Take a few deep breaths. Read them repeatedly. Absorb them. Believe them. And calm the fuck down.
