Burning

September 15, 2010

Most things we do have some unintended consequences, but some people are more circumspect than others, and some people are fruitcakes.

The bloke from Florida who wanted to burn the Koran has already had far too much attention than was warranted, but a piece by my friend Phil in Afghanistan brings a solemn dose of reality to our thinking, and is a timely reminder that in our interdependent world, the actions we all take can cause ripples not only in our own pond, but in places and ways that we might never imagine.
