Two! it was TWO shoes.



and that was fine. I think, however, its a horrible tragedy that the guy who did it has apparently disappeared. Latest news is that's he's being held, but no one seems to know where.

Latest bit I read today was that the journalist who threw the shoes was hospitalized after being beaten by the Iraqi Prime Minister's guards. No word on his current condition.

Haha. Bush was like ... yeah he threw a shoe?
so what?
He didn't want that media attention.
I guess we're glad that shoe didn't have a bomb.
and i've hear that throwing shoes is a sign of contempt [no duh cheers ]

I've always been completely a-political. I stay out of politics personally.

I'm fascinated by politics... but only the significant stuff. I'm not interested so much in small regulations and whatnot, but I love watching the news and seeing how the current geopolitical situation unfolds.

That's cool, and kinda understandable, but still not for me.

in the Middle East, shoes are considered very very dirty. even showing the bottom of your shoe to a guest (like if you were to cross your legs) is a major social faux-pas

Back in the day, showing the bottom of your bare foot to someone was their version of the middle finger.

On the matter of the shoes, the thrower was sentenced to 3 years in jail yesterday. Why?! It is wrong NOT to throw shoes at Bush!
