Tuesday's trackings

This time from the Islamic extremist front:
"A Swedish artist who angered Muslims by depicting the Prophet Muhammad as a dog was assaulted Tuesday as angry protesters interrupted his university lecture about the limits of artistic freedom. Lars Vilks told The Associated Press a man in the front row ran up to him and head-butted him during the lecture, breaking his glasses but leaving him uninjured. It wasn't immediately clear what happened to the attacker.
A video clip of the incident on the website of a Swedish newspaper showed police using pepper spray and batons to hold off an angry crowd shouting "God is great" in Arabic after Vilks was escorted out of the lecture hall."

Have moderate Muslims around the world denounced this? They're out there. They need to make themselves heard.

Tigers 5, Yankees 4: woo-hoo! A win over the Yankees is always encouraging. Key stats: Johnny Damon homered; he's been a big addition for the Tigers, with a .295 batting average, but also a .412 on-base percentage and a .455 slugging average. And Jose Valverde continues to save games..
