In my post last night about the Oklahoma beheading, I ridiculed a CNN expert named Martin Savidge for referring to the possibility (or lack of it) that Alton Alexander Nolan was a “card-carrying member” of the Islamic State.
Well, it turns out that my scorn was premature. I was wrong. I apologize to Martin Savidge and everyone else at CNN.
Late last night, while cleaning up the blood and broken glass after a bar fight at the Palmetto Lounge in Sarasota, Florida, the bartender discovered an identification card* that had been dropped by one of the pugilists who took part in the brawl:
The person who lost the card may drop by the Sarasota Police Department at any time to reclaim it. Unfortunately, while Mr. Mahmoud is there he will also be arraigned on charges of assault, battery, mayhem, pandemonium, mopery, public intoxication, and indecent exposure in the presence of underage livestock.
* Yes, this is a joke. The card is actually a digital composite that was assembled this morning in the subterranean laboratories of Schloss Bodissey.
