"Burn a Quran" Update: Pics Getting Weirder

Burn a Quran

As Terry Jones continues to score attention (Now the Vatican; his eminence, Anderson Cooper; and Obama — weighing in quite appropriately, at this point, and labeling the plan a “stunt”), I wonder if you get a vigilante vibe from yesterday’s photo of the Quran-burning pastor and his heat-packing escort?

Of course, there’s also the old adage: “just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they also aren’t out to get you.”

(caption: Pastor Terry Jones, right, f the Dove World Outreach Center arrives at a news conference with an armed escort in Gainesville, Fla., Wednesday, Sept. 8, 2010. Jones stated that he is going forward with a scheduled burning of copies of the Quran at his church on Saturday, Sept. 11.)
