Sub-blogger WillyShake Hits The Big Time
Congrats to WillyShake for getting mentioned by NRO's The Corner yesterday for his post on the Pope's speech -- a speech that Muslims found offensive for some reason (going so far as to fire-bomb churches, apparently because they're upset that their religion was mentioned as being founded in violence). As is appropriate whenever a sub-blogger gets linked by a "mainstream" site, he (WillyShake, not the Pope) mentioned our group submarine blog Ultraquiet No More in an update to the post welcoming the new readers. BZ, Willy! (It would have been even cooler if Benedict XVI had mentioned UQNM, though.)
Regarding the over-reaction to the Pontiff's speech, Ninme has much more (as would be expected). I personally was impressed that the Pope stood his ground and didn't issue an apology, only an "I'm sorry you misunderstood me" statement that will, I'm sure, cause even more protests.
