Thailand Nightlife Roundup

Welcome to my website.  Unlike the universe, this website has a purpose: to offer rants, tirades, opinions and discussion about books on Thailand, give an overview of nightlife in Thailand and, yes, to provide a few news items which might not appear elsewhere.  And to have some fun.

Bar, club and restaurant owners who would like to send material on their special events, birthday bashes, anniversary parties, etc., are welcome to do so but please remember men in Thailand are a bit jaded so if you’re just going to offer the usual free gourmet food and free full band entertainment and free beautiful and eager-to-please women, well, the lads have been there, done that. So do try to offer potential patrons something special. ;-)

There is a contest every two weeks when this column appears and the first to answer the question correctly or identify a photograph correctly will receive vouchers worth at least 3,500 baht in food and drink, i.e., 500 baht each, from Larry's Dive, Shadow Bar, The Old Dutch, the Big Mango, Electric Blue, The Duke of Wellington pub, and Bourbon Street Restaurant. The prizes will build up in case anyone doesn't win it immediately so the bonanza for the eventual winner could get quite interesting.  It will double to 7,000 and, if still no winner, to 10,500, etc.  Second prize is a "I Support Single Moms" T-shirt.  And please remember a part of all money received from the sale of my books goes to needy Thais (in the form of payment to go go dancers, waitresses and hostesses).


Please note scientific tests have shown that the

amount of Melamine contained in this column is

well below the safety level of 2.5 mg/kg. and far below

that contained in any other Thailand Nightlife Column. 


It almost looked like it was Hugh Hefner night at Mojos, what with those cute bunny ears and tails and all.


Thursday, 27 November 2008 2-4 p.m.

I'll be signing copies of Identity Theft at the Texas Lone Star Saloon

Sukhumvit Soi 22, Washington Square

Free Thanksgiving lunch at 3 p.m.

Identity Theft and other of my titles will be on sale below retail

Don't forget to buy the Lone Star ladies a drink or two





Diva - A great new coyote dance place on Sukhumvit Soi 11.  I was extremely impressed with the quality of the shows here.  Very well done.  I went to the night after opening night so I don't know if the shows will be like that every night of the week but you might want to check with place out.  Same side of the street as Cheap Charlies.


Bob, owner of Mojos and the Office Bar, soi 33, had a birthday.  He also had the entertaining idea of bringing the Mojo girls over to the Office Bar to dance on the bars and tables there.  I'll be posting pictures from that event next column.  It was a fun night and, this being Bangkok and events happening everywhere always, it was one of the four nights that Renoir Bar celebrates its anniversary each year.


Sometimes the ladies do look great wearing the customers' glasses.



Jerry Hopkins and Byron Bales.  Two of Thailand's talented writers.  Byron is also a detective.  Byron has bet me one thousand baht.  He says McCain will win.  Smuck.  Easy money!



Thai sweets being made at Siam Paragon.  And are they delicious!  I pig out every time on crispy roti.




One of the doms at BarBar on Patpong II has decided to call it quits and go back upcountry and do whatever retired dominatrixes do in this country (I would not wish to speculate).  I don't know about you but for me it's always very sad when a dom hangs up her whip.  Kind of like a great gunfighter hanging up his six-shooters.  Or a great samurai warrior hanging up his sword.  Or a great violinist hanging up, sorry, I digress, Provigil does have that effect.  Anyway, so I suggested we hold a special and elaborate "Bury the Whip" ceremony.  Her response, if my Thai served me correctly, was something like, "I'll bury it in your ass if you don't shut the fuck up."  Oh.  OK.  Sure.  Whatever...



(Not just a Drink)

OK, so you've heard about the couple that had sex on the beach in Dubai and who are being sentenced to three months in custody.  Well, as you know, I have no love for Islam anMichelle Palmer and Vince Acors montage pictured especially for its hypocritical, fanatical bullshit.  But if you go to one of these Islamic countries, and if a cop warns you once, and he comes back and sees you are still at it and didn't give a tinker's damn about his warning or Dubai's rules, then, frankly that's your own damn fault.  Also, and I don't mean to be cruel as it is well known I am a sweetheart of a guy, but if you look at this woman's picture, well, is that someone you would be so desperate to do the nasty with that you would risk doing it on a Dubai beach even after a cop warns you?!  Not that the guy is any looker but one article said something about he really had a way with women, that he was considered a "prince charming" with women.  Well, OK, each to his or her own.  But if you must go to a Muslim country, do not have sex on the beach, OK, common sense?  Duuuuh...



Your new word for the day: Palmary

"Louis Pasteur is best known for originating pasteurization, but he also made palmary contributions in the field of immunology, including finding a vaccination for anthrax."  OK, how about: "I went to Long Gun looking for my pal Mary but she wasn't there."



Anniversary Party at Renoir - Cowgirl Night: a fun night!




Every year the Renoir Bar, Sukhumvit soi 33, has four nights of fun at their anniversary.  The ladies dress in different costumes each night.  Cowgirl Night was the last of the four.  The girl is a Thai Penthouse model.

I find this notice very strange.  Youtube has an incredible number of kinky videos; everything from foot fetish to domination to stripping.  Yet my video of an innovative sushi bar was rejected.  There's just no justice in the world.  Anyway, here is one of the stills.  If anyone knows where I can send the video, a cool place not a porn place, let me know.





I confess all these elephants parading up and down Soi Cowboy and in other nightlife areas of the city fascinate me.  I guess being in an urban environment is not good for elephants but then it probably isn't good for me either and you don't hear me complaining.  In a couple of the pictures, you can see Al Eberhardt (41 years, 3 months, 7 days in Thailand) feeding the elephant bananas.  Although those who know him better said he was in fact grabbing the elephant's bananas for himself.  Who knows?  Check out the photo at right.  The elephant was in need of a beer and headed for the Londoner.  But he was refused entry because of improper dress.




Round & About


A friend of mine who speaks fluent Thai was in a taxi with a few go go dancers and one of them opined that if she could come back as something else she would want to be a soldier.  Another said she would want to be a policeman, never a soldier.  This went back and forth each demanding to know why the other would make such a horrible choice.  The discussion segued into an argument.  Finally, the girl who wanted to be a soldier said: "Well, if the police are so fucking great then why do they allow a 15-year-old like you to dance in a go go bar!"  That ended the argument but did shake up the wide-eyed taxi driver who was taking it all in.


Five Japanese men were about to enter Long Gun bar on Soi Cowboy when the Thai doorman said the guy could not bring the beer inside.  The Japanese may have been a bit drunk but in any case as they insisted on going in, and as the doorman attempted to stop them, one of the Japanese hit the Thai doorman.  Apparently, the humble, patient but muay-Thai expert Charlie got involved because a mutual friend saw him later and his shirt was speckled with blood (not his own).  The friend asked what had happened.  Charlie just said: "Yakuza cannot go into Long Gun."  (Charlie and John in the picture at left on Soi Cowboy.


Khun Nana mentioned the nurse at Bumrungrad stroking his arm to relax him when he was getting a shot.  Much the same thing happened to me the other day at the same hospital.  A cancer doctor was using his tiny camera at the end of the long, flexible tube to check on how things were going.  The tube was inserted into my nostril and then sent down into my throat where the camera would report back its findings.  It is not painful but does involve discomfort.  I was sitting in a chair and while the doctor stood before me looking into the tube, I felt his nurse's right hand on my back, and her left hand gently stroking my shoulder, upper back and arm.  Hmmm.  Nobody in the VA (Veteran's Administration) clinics in America ever did that.  I wonder why.


As adorable as these coyote dancers are, they are not so easy to get to bed, I can assure you.  In fact, only a minority will do so.  So those of us used to the system involving go go dancers might be in for a shock.  A friend of mine in fact regards the increase of coyote in Thailand as a dangerous trend.  As he points out, buying drinks for women and not getting sex is the system we thought we had left behind in the West.  Coyote dancing is a kind of fifth column or some such creeping its way into exotic Asia whereby men get less than they are used to and less than they deserve which is in other words a bit like being back in the West.  An interesting argument.  Should we be sounding the alarm!?  Are these pretty faces and sexy bodies Trojan horses?




Halloween fun at the Londoner Pub, Sukhumvit soi 33.


As it is a pretty safe bet that most readers of this column have yet to buy my book The Go Go Dancer who Stole My Viagra & other Poetical Tragedies of Thailand I have decided to post one of the poems from the book from time to time.  Some of the poems are serious and some are for fun. 


Johnson & Johnson (& Johnson) 

Inside a Bangkok massage parlor

ensconced in room number 14-B

and from a village near Mukdahan

a masseuse about to turn twenty-three.


And, of course, Johnson & Johnson

Refreshing and mild

Anti-rash baby powder and cream

And as if in a dream

Once again I’m a child.


No synthetic additives

highest quality talc

in every snow-white flake.


But I begin to wonder if this is a massage parlor

or if maybe I wandered into a maternity hospital

by mistake.


But soon

The Lady from Mukdahan

coats her palm with baby lotion

and begins a most congenial motion

on the smaller of my two brains

to which a man pays such devotion.


I try to keep my mind occupied

I try to keep my mind

I try to keem my minmm

I keep keem minmmmmmmm

I try mmkmmkmmmminmmmm

Now in Bangkok stores, Bookazine and Asiabooks: Identity Theft, A Novel


Christmas is coming - Give Books as Gifts!


Identity Theft is a novel within a novel, and as the character inside my novel was having such a good time with a go go dancer, I decided to enter the novel myself as a character and take the go go dancer out of a bar and into my bedroom.  It is, therefore, the first time in literary history that a novelist barfines one of his own characters!  Bernard Trink, (Bangkok Post) who often gives my titles good reviews, did not like this book.  I had predicted to friends that he wouldn't, especially as it is somewhat experimental.  But Lang Reid (Pattaya Mail) described it as a "wonderful literary masterpiece."  So that means so far the score is one to one.


And on a related topic can you believe that the Nobel Prize Committee has passed me over again?  Surely with some of the book titles I've got, I deserved consideration.  Come on, admit it, The Go Go Dancer who Stole My Viagra is a lot catchier than War and Peace.



These cute college girls were selling coupon books at the Londoner for a few days.  I decided to buy one but the beauty told me it costs 1500 baht.  So I took their picture instead.  Yeah, I know, Cheap Charlie.  The happy fellow in the picture did buy one.  Hard to resist those two in their incredibly short shorts.



"Turning and turning in the widening gyre

The falcon cannot hear the falconer;

Things fall apart; the center cannot hold"

William Butler Yeats



Here we have the friendly staff of the new Queen Victoria Pub on Sukhumvit 23, within a dildo's throw of Soi Cowboy.  A very enthusiastic place with a good menu, especially the King's breakfast.  Not a bad place to start the night (or morning).


Lovely eye candy at Mojos.  This dancer is crazy about me (She just doesn't know it).



Do you get drunk late at night and send e-mails out that you regret the next day?  Google Gmail is going to make you answer some math questions if you try to send out e-mail in the early morning hours!  I kid you not!  But what if you are in a hurry with an emergency?  Westerners are strange people indeed, no?  Or is it just me?  Another Big Brother step?


The Perfect Storm

I have been speaking with bar owners, taxi drivers, soi van drivers, etc.  They all say business is waaay down.  One bar owner said this low season may extend into next year.  With luck, November and December will get the tills ringing but there is a lot of justified pessimism out there.  Another bar owners said he had several SMSs from guys canceling this year's trip to the Land of Smiles; not just themselves but them and their mates.  And these are guys who usually come each year.  A bit of gloom and doom out there, I'm afraid.  How small bar owners in Pattaya will make it, I have no idea.  Right now you can probably be happy about being a punter, not a bar owner.  But it is indeed the Perfect Storm: Political troubles and demonstrations in Thailand are keeping nervous tourists away and causing some countries to issue travel warnings about coming to Thailand.  And, of course, financially, the world has gone to hell and nobody has the money they used to have (unless you are a bailed-out bank, of course) so they travel domestically if at all, rather than flying to places like Thailand.  Yes, indeed, a perfect storm.  For lots of bankruptcies.


A new erotic calendar coming your way!  It should be out by the time you read this.  From the same folks who bring you After Dark magazine.  It is indeed an interesting calendar and a professional job!  And good news for readers!  Beginning next column, this unique, erotic calendar will be offered as a prize in the contests.  The Nada Didley-Squat prize moves to fourth guesser because the third guesser to get the right answer gets one of the calendars.




A Fulfilled Prophesy

I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.
Thomas Jefferson, Letter to the Secretary of the Treasury Albert Gallatin (1802)
3rd president of US (1743 - 1826)

Please note: for whatever technical reason, Khun Nana's column this time on Firefox is all messed up; on internet explorer it is fine.  So if Khun Nana's corner is messed up, try viewing it on IE.

Khun Nana's Corner

Khun Nana is a savvy local expat who keeps in shape by hitting most of the bars of Nana Plaza as often as possible.  From his vast experience, he will enlighten and entertain us with his recollections of the bar scene be they humorous, tragic or somewhere in between.

To pay or not to pay, that is the question.  No, I am not misquoting Shakespeare but referring to the dilemma of being a womanizer in Bangkok.  Do you look for a regular girlfriend, or just pay for short term relationships?  Worse yet, do you pay a lady for short term love and then pay her a “salary” to be your constant companion?  Living in Bangkok means that you have so many choices when it comes to female companionship that it boggles the mind.  Herein lies the dilemma.  With so many choices it is necessary for the guy to know exactly what kind of life he really would lead if he could do it anyway he wants.  

We men don’t have the best reputation for being introspective and understanding our inner most feelings.  In Paradise you can do it anyway you want.  You can have a regular girlfriend and do short time ladies on the side.  You can stay single and have a string of one night stands.  You can have several “special” arrangements with ladies and occasionally bring a new one into the picture just for the hell of it.  There are literally dozens of other combinations and possibilities and I must say many guys end up running around like a crazy man the first year or so in a total manic state.  We just aren’t used to being able to do anything that we want, at anytime we want, with anybody we want.  

The men who seem to get into the most trouble are the one’s who think they want to have fun, but deep inside they are really looking to be loved.  Obviously the ladies in the naughty nightlife are for fun, and the other 99% of the population you can explore looking for that special love.  Problem is, this group of guys take naughty gals for fun, then try to turn them into a “good girl” by buying her out of the bar (yes I know that is an awful way to put it but that’s what it is called here) and lavishing her with money and gifts.  It blows up in their face nearly every time and then they blame Thailand for all of their problems. 

It really is nauseating to hear one of these morons drone on and on in your local pub about how his special little go-go gal turned out to be nothing but a gold digger.  It is free entertainment but after hearing the same story (but with different characters) a few hundred times it really does get old.  I have a personal theory about this phenomenon that I call “modern day natural selection.”  I am sure you are all familiar with Darwin’s theory of natural selection that basically says the strongest animals survive and mate and produce offspring.  Well, in this modern day it is not how physically strong one is that determines success and failure in life but how intelligent or mentally strong.  These guys who send money to bargirls are at the bottom of the evolutionary ladder. 

We local lads do benefit a lot from these “sponsored” gals as they end up having plenty of money and almost unlimited free time.  My best English mate has really exploited this to his advantage better than anyone I know.  Flash (changing his name to protect the innocent) has a string of gals who used to work the streets and bars but now have sponsors and are often willing to sleep with him for free.  Fair enough as this is very common here.  One thing that is consistent with all the gals is that they need to have at least one guy in their life that they sleep with for fun and not for money.  More often than not this is a Thai guy, but it is becoming increasingly common for this to be a western guy.  So if you have a gal on salary, I guarantee that she has at least one guy (probably more) that she sees when she actually wants to have fun.  Makes perfect sense to me as the gal is working when she spends time with her sponsor, and certainly everyone needs to have some sort of social life outside of work. 

Flash has a few very impressive freebies, but he has taken this wonderful situation one step further.  He washes all of his clothes before they come over and stacks them up on the sofa.  Then the day after love making tells them that they are expected to do his ironing!  I can just see the gal’s eyes now when she walks into his place for some fun and frolic and spots the huge stack of un-ironed clothes.  “This guy is going to pound me all night and then in the morning when I am totally exhausted I will have to iron all his clothes! “ Cheeky bugger but I do love the guy. 

My favorite quote this week comes from a guy I met in Nana Plaza who travels the world selling medical devices.  While staring and drooling at one particularly sexy lass in Angel Witch, he said “there are entire countries that don’t have a single girl that good looking.”


Until next time.  Khun Nana

Short but good New York Times article on the short story




The Bangkok Post continues to publish articles written by fanatic Muslims in addition to their own Muslim columnist who could never be accused of being fair or being intelligent.  It is sad to watch a newspaper devolve from objective reporting into a propaganda board for Islamic extremism.  If you want news rather than propaganda, forget the Post, read the Nation.

Letters from Readers

Hi Dean,

As usual, it was another great submission!  Regarding the Band-Aid that you retrieved from your pocket, it reminds me of a funny story.  I was having the 3rd of many sex-oriented experiences with a (American) woman.  We were in a hotel and she asked me what I was planning on doing together afterwards.  (Apparently, she wasn't overwhelmed with my performance!)  I said that there was no need to go out later.  If we needed anything, we would simply send out for food and medical supplies.  (After that, she gave me the "ka-poong-ing" of my life!)

As always, I/we love the photos of the Mojo Coyote dancers.  Yep, it appears that some were some missing dancers while there were some new ones. Love the "daily routine" shpeel!  Can we get more stories like "Cultural Confusion" about the funny experiences that you and your friends have?

Classic -- 'I would say that has been my Achilles's heel but not sure I can spell "Achilles" so I won't.'! Thanks to you from all of us who aren't living your envious life!  CB



Thanks, CB, but you needn't be envious of my life.  There are many drawbacks living in Thailand.  Like, um, well, er, OK, one of the girls I passed on Soi Cowboy didn't call me a 'hansum man' and one of the soi 33 bars did not place out a dish of peanuts and a cold towel.  You see?  Tough life.


Attn: Mr. (as if . . . )

I send this missive in the spirit of a loving child to a goofy parent.  Just a reminder that the end of the month is coming up which means that the beginning of another month is also nigh and you have a responsibility to post the November column on time. 

As you know in the past your interpretation of when the month starts has been variously on the 2nd and the 3rd and the . . . you know what I am talking about. 

Please try to grab the reins of responsibility and post on time this month.  The correctional facility I am currently in requires that I reserve recreational room TV time in advance and they are not disposed to hearing any goofy excuses from faraway places.

A Fan You Will Never Guess


Ah, Great cheering and celebration is heard about the town upon receiving the news that khun Dana did not dispose of himself by leaping off a tall building, after all.  Yes, I think you will find this column up on time as I have to dash off to Pattaya for a cultural weekend; hence, it might even be up slightly ahead of time.  At least the correctional facility allows you to read this column which shows leniency and good sense.  A word of advice: watch your back when you bend down to pick up the soap.  And to quote the final words on the edicts of the great Ch'ing Dynasty emperors: "Tremble and Obey."

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11



Jaipur: Eleven-year-old Nazmeen can barely speak. She suffered 99 per cent burn injuries after her neighbour set her on fire - all because she dared to wear lipstick.  Nazmeen was attacked by the man she called nana (grandfather). On Friday, Saleem told the little girl not to wear lipstick. When she defied him, in a fit of rage he allegedly molested her before pouring kerosene on her and setting her on fire. "He was beating me and when I said that I would complain to my father, he started abusing him. Please punish him," says Nazmeen. Police have arrested 55-year-old Saleem, who runs a shop in the Ghatgate area.Investigating officer on the case, NS Nagora said, "We are looking into the molestation charges as well. Investigations are on and a police team has just been sent to the hospital again."


The True face of Islam

Jordan - Has the death penalty for any Muslim selling land to a Jew.

Sudan - Conversion by a Muslim to another religion is punishable by death.

Pakistan - Conversion by a Muslim to another religion is punishable by death.

Saudi Arabia - Conversion by a Muslim to another religion is punishable by death. Bibles are illegal. Churches are illegal. Easter celebrations are illegal. It is punishable by death for a non-Muslim to enter the “holy” Muslim cities of Medina and Mecca.  No crosses allowed, even the symbol of the Red Cross.



We have watched Islamic terrorists behead innocent civilians. We have been told that this is completely and totally against Islam; that Islam has supposedly been hijacked.

But yet, From the Koran:

"When thy Lord spake unto the angels, 'I will be with you: therefore establish ye the faithful. I will cast a dread into the hearts of the infidels.' Strike off their heads then, and strike off from them every finger tip." - Sura 8:12 

We have watched Islamic terrorists commit “jihad” against the West. Under no circumstances, we are lectured, does the Koran tell its followers to attack nonbelievers.

But yet, From the Koran:

"Make war upon such of those to whom the Scriptures have been given as believe not in God, or in the last day, and who forbid not that which God and His Apostle have forbidden, and who profess not the profession of the truth, until they pay tribute out of hand, and they be humbled." Sura 9:29

We know that the Islamic terrorists envision a world that is entirely Muslim. Surely this has nothing to do with the Islam religion.

But yet, From the Koran:

“Say to the infidels: If they desist from their unbelief, what is now past shall be forgiven them, but if they return to it, they have already before them the doom of the ancients! Fight then against them till strife be at an end, and the religion be all of it God's. If they desist, verily God beholdeth what they do:" - Sura 8:39-40


Large Numbers of Muslims in England favor Suicide Bombings

23% of the world's Muslims believe 9/11 was legitimate, from an Islamic point of view.

"Young Midland Muslims support suicide bombings new poll reveals," from the Sunday Mercury, October 18:

ALMOST a quarter of young Muslims support suicide bombings, according to a shock new poll on an internet website. Radicalised youths from the Midlands are among those to have posted messages backing terrorists on the forum.



The body of a 20-year-old Iraqi girl turned up recently in a small Sunni town south of Tikrit. Her own family had killed her. She had been having an affair with her cousin, but that was not the problem: cousins often marry in this part of the world. But they had decided to have sex and he had persuaded her to let him film this "just for us".

Of course, he could not resist showing the tape to his friends, to boast. The pictures started to circulate in this small town and her family found out the couple had been sleeping together. Honour demanded that they murder her - not him, naturally.







A Somali teenager was beaten to death by a gang in a row over accusations his cousin drank alcohol, a court heard.

Politically incorrect but true: The more Muslims you let in, the more problems a country has.  Europe and England are very slow on the uptake; America isn't much better.


We have reached the point now where books (Random House, etc.), video games (Sony), BBC programs, and movies (lots) are now being censored or not released at all because they "might prove offensive to Muslims."  Muslims have managed to create a climate of fear so that we are now into censoring ourselves just in case something offends Muslims.  Very sad to watch the West not wake up.  Little by little Islamcreep is taking over.  Several Western cities now have no-go areas for "infidels." If only Churchill were alive.



"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property ‹either as a child, a wife, or a concubine‹ must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science ‹the science against which it had vainly struggled‹ the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome."     - Winston Churchill

“Religion is an insult to human dignity.  With or without it, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things.  But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.”-- by Nobel Laureate physicist Steven Weinberg. 





Some books that tell it like it is!


Please note, I do not and never would advocate violence against individual Muslims in any community.  For one thing, the guy you beat up with a baseball bat may turn out to have just escaped from some horrible Islamic regime.  Individual violence against Muslims or doing damage to mosques, etc., is just stupid and is also counterproductive as Muslim fanatics will show pictures of that all over the Muslim world to incite people against the West. 

A good case can be made that Islam is a fanatical brotherhood masquerading as a religion, and, indeed, the adherents of Islam often act that way.   But, as individuals, a Muslim neighbor might possibly be more honest than a Christian neighbor.  It is only that the Muslim will have been brought up in a religion/brotherhood with a medieval mindset that is centuries behind the times and has a penchant for violence, especially against those who criticize the Koran and other aspects of Islam.   Winning the war against Muslim fanatics will take a long time and be hard-fought but it can and will be won.  But we must demand that more and more moderate Muslims join the fight against fanatical Muslims.   We must demand that our leaders absolutely reject any "compromise" on our right to free expression.  Compromising with the fanatics pulls the rug out from the Muslim moderates desperately trying to reform and secularize Islam.  And we must never bow to Muslim demands to curb our hard-won freedom of expression.   And freedom of expression always includes satire and even insulting satire including satire of glorified tribal myths called religion.
