The world learned about the two bombings in Boston last week because when a bomb happens in America, it's world news. And if you're not wearing either a cowboy hat or a baseball cap, you better get your Muslim ass to the nearest mosque and give it up to Allah that you don't get tear-gassed, arrested and sent to Guantanamo.
