Just as an exercise, let yourself think of horrible facts about Christians in history. During the time Muslims ruled Spain, there was relative peace among Muslims, Jews and Christians.

Two weeks ago today, we had to put our dog down. His name was X, named after the firebrand hero of my youth, Malcolm X.
