And what about the fakirs? Nobody ever blames the damn fakirs


Mysterious reader M sends in this quote and gloss:

"On Tuesday Mr. Foley's lawyer, David Roth, said in a news conference that the former congressman is gay and had been sexually abused from age 13 to 15 by a member of the clergy. Mr. Roth said Mr. Foley did not blame his conduct on the abuse he suffered as a teenager. Mr. Roth did not identify the cleric or even the denomination, saying, 'I cannot comment on whether the clergyman was a priest, a minister, an imam or a rabbi.'"

The rioting will start in five minutes.

Does this mean the House of Representatives might cancel all performances of the Foley Follies? Some good may come out of this yet…
