Hypocrisy On The Left (Surprise?) And Commentary Thereon 

San Francisco's City Lights Bookstore, once renowned for being a champion of freedom of expression, won't carry anything by Oriana Fallaci. "We don't carry books by fascists," sneers the clerk.

Go read Cathy Seipp's LA Times op-ed piece for some thoughts on this, um, disappointing turn of events.

I used to live in the Bay Area, and I used to love San Francisco, but the whole city's gone so far around the bend that you'd have to pay me to go there now.

Credit Austin Bay for the pointer.
