So I just found a terrific blog ...Or Does it Explode? Inside the struggle for civil rights in the Middle East. Good stuff all around, but what particularly caught my eye was learning that Imad Mughniyeh's son Jihad appears to be a Yankees fan. Bronx Bombers suddenly takes on a sinister meaning.
I'll leave it to some aspiring comparative lit prof to deconstruct the meaning of this in terms of cultural hegemony, post-modern irony, and globalization. My own interpretation is simpler.
I've written before that the New York Yankees are evil. This seals it.
Now to get cracking on a network graph linking Mughniyeh to George Steinbrenner.
