Portland Press Herald FAIL

That people would complain about images in the newspaper containing local(!) Muslims at prayer on 9/11 is one thing (ignorant and small-minded...ok, that's two); but for the editorial board of said paper to then apologize profusely for the offense caused is beyond craven, unprofessional, soulless and capitulates to the very worst strains in our society.

It is why, in a nutshell, I don't think I could ever live in Maine again.

Congratulations, Press Herald Editor and Publisher Richard Connor, you are now worthy of your readership.
