Here's an interesting take on the mosque to be built near Ground Zero: it's not going to happen because it's essentially a publicity stunt.
Commentator David Frum posted his take on this back in August. If he's right, it's brilliant. Controversy is always good for generating discussion and look at how much time we're wasting talking about it! I mean, even President Obama has decided to comment, elevating the whole thing well above where it should have stayed.
