I’m probably in a minority of one who doesn’t find the shoe incident particularly funny, especially not after hearing/reading reports that the individual is being tortured in custody.  However, I haven’t had time to read up with any kind of depth.  I’m not going to get in to the debate over whether the action was appropriate, nor whether it should be considered a symbolic protest rather than an assault.  I’m more concerned with the fallout.  Does anybody have a link to a story to get me caught up?

Hopefully I’ll have something intelligent to say about it later.
