rushdie in crosshairs again

I can’t quite decide which piece of news is the most surreal: the fact that poor Salman Rushdie is again in the cross-hairs of the wacko Revolutionary Guards in Iran or the fact that Rushdie is reportedly wooing Sophie Dahl, the model/author who is also the granddaughter of Roald Dahl. And in an even more surreal way, the two stories connect in this quote, attributed to the children’s author, that Rushdie “knew what he was doing and got what he was asking for.”
