Professor Cole also points out the same kind of ambivalent feelings I had upon learning that the Artist Formerly Known as Cat Stevens had been taken off a plane because he’s on a terrorist watch list. A lot of people made fun of that, mostly because they still think of Cat Stevens as the guy who sang Moonshadow and Peace Train. Sorry kids, that Cat Stevens left us a long time ago, replaced by Yusuf Islam, a radical nutball who thinks it’s okay to kill people for writing books he disagrees with. Several times he endorsed the Ayatollah Khomeini’s death sentence on Salman Rushdie back in 1989. Sorry pal, your membership in the human race was revoked the moment you said so. You get zero sympathy from me.
