Al Qaeda in Columbus

Day 3 in Columbus and the locals news is exploding with stuff about the trucker that was an Al Qaeda mole. This sort of thing is a scary development for American Muslims and brown skinned people in general....

On a different note, did you know that Columbus was Ohio's biggest city!

Columbus became Ohio's biggest city by gobbling up suburbs and cow pastures. Cleveland's still a much larger metro area.

Razib, watch out... if you get picked up and they lock you up with a huge black guy... we'll tell him about your views regarding the "Bell Curve" and Rushton and black penis size...

yeah, it's great, walking around town as an out-of-towner of brown complexion when every paper has a big fat pakistani face and the headline "Al Qaeda in Columbus." any other brown people out there (hello sikhs!) want to form a vigilante squad that will hunt and kill all american al qaeda moles and their families??? ;0)

Cleveland's metro area is much bigger than Columbus's. With big cities losing population due to bad schools, you have to not infer that because the main city is shrinking, the metro area is.
