Cat and Mouse

We can't find Osama, but we kept Cat Stevens out of the US. Yep, Osama is the real cat here, as he is still on the loose, while mousy Cat Stevens, known as Yusef Islam for 30 years and a peace activist of some note, is being shipped back to England. The plane was actually diverted to Maine on route from London to Washington after it was discovered that Stevens/Islam was on board.

"On his official Web site, [Yusef] Islam has posted numerous statements in opposition to terrorist attacks, most recently the school seizure in Beslan, Russia that ended with more than 300 people dead -- about half of them children. Islam also criticized the September 11, 2001, attacks against the United States and donated a portion of the royalties from a four-disc set of his music to the families of the September 11th Fund."

Yeah he sure is a dangerous guy. Its all just so absurd.
