It’s a Shoe Fling

It’s not everyday I get asked to write a “guest” blog post. So when the New York Times asked me to write a post for The Moment Blog about the Iraqi journalist Muntader al-Zaidi who hurled his shoes at President Bush the other day I though “Why not?” I was considering writing a post about the incident for this blog anyway.

I really enjoyed the opportunity to contribute this post to the “Times”, thanks for thinking of me JP.
