      Unknown - So true! I used to respect John Simpson's judgement on things...but now I wonder was I deluded or is he now senile. How could anyone with any claim to judgement use that phrase " till this stupid fashion passes". If it's a fashion it's a line that start way back with the Koran and the command to strike the unbelievers in the neck.
