Bush = Bin Laden

Woye Soyinka, by all accounts a brave and courageous man and a brilliant writer, appears to have gone awry. The Nigerian Nobel Laureate will shortly deliver the prestigious BBC Reith Lectures, in which he will characterize George Bush and Osama bin Laden as a "twin strain of the same fanatic spore that threatens to consume the world in its messianic fires." Proof, I suppose, that standing up to dictators in one's earlier years does not inoculate you from egregious moral relativism later on in life.
