My profile photo

It's of the great actor Herbert Lom, from one of the Pink Panther movies (this one from A Shot in the Dark, the first one). I chose it because it reflects my experience debating with various PC MC apologists for Islam over the years. All too often I end up feeling like Lom's character Chief Inspector Charles Dreyfus, who developed a spastic twitch of the eye reflecting the constant frustration, weary exasperation, and beleaguered battle fatigue which the bumbling stupidity of the clueless Inspector Cluseau caused him day in and day out.

Sadly, PC MCs are not merely comic, like the Peter Sellers character, or like the Keystone Kops they also often resemble; but tragicomic.
