Moral Frivolity

Simply brilliant piece on the Marine mosque shooting by Kevin Myers in

today’s Telegraph.  Kevin is one of the best opinion writers at work

today.  Sample:  “Vicarious indignation at so-called atrocities is a moral

frivolity: it proves that we are unaware of the scale of the crisis we face,

now and into the foreseeable future. Our common enemy has vision,

dedication, courage and intelligence. He is profoundly grateful for whatever

tit-bits come his way: our media have a moral obligation to ensure that we

are scattering absolutely none in his direction.”  The full piece is here.
