In My Travels

I was reading the always nifty "Little Green Footballs", and in the comments discussing this post about the Muslim pilgrims who were trampled to death while they were doing their "pilgrim thing" was this comment:

And as for those in the Middle East who saw the space shuttle Columbia disaster as a "sign from God," what does this mean to you when twice as many believers are killed during an act of piety than the infidels lost going into space?

Excellent question! You know, some blogs have the best comments.

The question is an excellent one and probably one that they do not ask themselves (out loud)

That argument should shut the terror-mongers up for a while.

If killing astronauts is an answered prayer, why were people who were praying also killed?
