Nation of Aslam

The source isn't specified, but according to David T. at Harry's Place, the Guardian's NUJ Chapel held a special meeting yesterday to discuss the Dilpazier Aslam case. Aslam was present at the meeting, which produced the following, arguably pretty weird, result:

A vote to condemn [Aslam's] sacking was passed by a narrow majority. A senior editor added an amendment which [also] passed, which noted that he had not satisfactorily answered the questions raised about anti-semitism.

UPDATE: It appears that the Guardian's American executive editor for news has now resigned over Sassygate.

The Guardian cares about anti-semitism? Other than perpetuating it?

This has nothing to do with your post...I noticed last night while my husband was reading a Bill & Teds comic that in a lot of the pictures, Bill is wearing a Mr. T Experience t-shirt. He said that's where he first heard of you guys, before he actually heard you on MTV.
There's no real point, I guess...I was just surprised to see that.
