Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Devoutly Worshipping the Voices in His Head

The Seattle shooter apparently wasn't a Muslim fanatic after all:

RICHLAND -- Naveed Haq, now widely portrayed as a Muslim American so angry at Israel that he shot up a Jewish charity in Seattle, had recently converted to Christianity.
It looks like the usual nativist story doesn't apply here.

Saw your comment at my blog. I'm glad we agree on this. I guess we don't agree on very many other things, but we didn't agree on much back in the early '80s either, did we?

Ah, Plenum. I was young and foolish back in my Plenum days. Now I'm just foolish.

Good to hear from you....

Or else he regretted his apostacy, and decided to show his true repentance and return to Submission with a blood sacrifice.

I like you Joseph, but you're an ass. He said "I am a Muslim American, angry at Israel", during the incident, and you appear to be calling people nativists for reporting this. Might people who disagree with you about immigration be merely wrong, not drooling xenophobic bigots?

It's taken for granted by manay antisemites that Judaism is a code word for the "Jewish race." Maybe he meant he was racially Muslim.

Okay. Maybe some of my rhetoric is a bit exaggerated. Come to think of it, I recently criticized Orin Judd on similar grounds.
