Next, we have two stories that you would hope are satirical -- but seem to be true. Both are from Jerry Coyne's blog:
1. Nigerian woman disowns "gay cat".
2. Muslim sensitivity leads to blacked-out faces of pigs.
Jeebus. I urge my readers to try and do something sensible today, to counter the nonsense running non-stop through people's heads.
PS: Just saw this:
Security officials say suspected Islamic extremists used explosives to attack a village in Nigeria's northeast, killing 52 people and razing more than 300 homes.
But by all means, keep focusing on the cat. After all, that's what's important.
