What Happens When You Criticize Bush

Watch what you wear and write:
An elderly man who wrote in a letter to the editor about Saddam Hussein's execution that "they hanged the wrong man" got a visit from Secret Service agents concerned he was threatening President Bush.

The letter by Dan Tilli, 81, was published in Monday's edition of The Express-Times of Easton, Pa. It ended with the line, "I still believe they hanged the wrong man."
An Australian man said he is considering suing national carrier Qantas for refusing to let him onto an international flight because he would not take off a T-shirt calling U.S. President George W. Bush a terrorist.

Allen Jasson said on Monday he was turned away last Friday at a Qantas departure gate in the southern city of Melbourne when he tried to board a flight to London while wearing a shirt with the a picture of Bush and the slogan "World's #1 terrorist."

I'm just wondering...do you think it's possible Quantas just isn't to hip to the idea of guys wearing shirts with the word "terrorist" emblazoned on them? And maybe, just maybe, for as overprotective as Quantas airlines might be to watch out for t-shirts that might disturb their passengers, that it's possible George Bush didn't have anything to do with Quantas policy regarding offending t-shirts?

I know, it probably sounds completely crazy to most of the readers of this blog that Bush isn't responsible for every injustice on the planet...but mull it over...I mean, anythings possible isn't it?
