    WASHINGTON – Farooque Ahmed, 34, of Ashburn, Va., was arrested today for attempting to assist others whom he believed to be members of al-Qaeda in planning multiple bombings at Metrorail stations in the Washington, D.C., area.

    I know,he just HAPPENED TO BE a Muslim. He could just as easily been a white Chirstian male.I Don't want to be an Islamaphobe. No reason to profile anybody. Comments?

    What!? I thought al-Qaeda was a rock band. I was just finishing a letter to NPR that recommended rounding up and arresting all fans of Rock n' Roll. After all, if one of 'them' will do it then surely 'all' of 'them' will!
