Well Jyllands-Posten published the Mohammed Cartoons and a number of Islamic countries threatened boycotts of Danish exports and made threats, in response to this a statement of support for free speech and expression (namely offending religious sensibilities of Muslims) was pretty much demanded.

I am in favour of everybody offending everybody, but not killing eachother over non-violent forms of expression.

And with that I want a drink, since this is a bar

Yeah, this part I know all too well... even though I was half around the world in Africa I still couldn't escape it - things got pretty "hot" i Nairobi and in the muslim dominated parts of Kenya at one point, but it all died down as suddenly as it begun there...

I just had a look at some of the old bars...

Looks like this is going to be the last bar... all the regular Octagoners are not coming anymore and someone started a competing bar!

Well, lets and and close this place in style people!

**Puts Mysterious Ways (Solar Plexus Club Mix) on jukebox and jumps up on bardesk and dances around - just for old times sake **
