Diana of Letter from Gotham expresses some of what I've been thinking. I am rather uninspired by what I perceive as the relative silence on the Left and the swarming hysterics on the Right. Though I tend to sympathize with the suspicion of Islam evinced by many on the Right, I have commented on the problems with a singular focus on reiteration of values in a vacuum of empirically driven analysis, and attempted to address the issue obliquely later in the form of a post. As for the silence of the Left, I am silent myself because the gut reaction is so inchoate and underwhelming.Addendum: I don't read many blogs, but Ed Brayton seems to have stood firm for free speech without temporizing.1 - Well, I've come close to being hysterical myself. See here. Boy does it feel good, but the end of the day there needs to be more than trite recitations of Truths we Hold True.
