Pure Coincidence

On the Boston Globe's website right now:

This:

VIENNA, Austria -- A German Muslim says his neighbors suspect he is making weapons in his mosque...An Austrian believer complains some dog owners set their pets on her when they pass her on the sidewalk...Such acts of "Islamophobia" are on the rise across Europe, where many Muslims are menaced and misunderstood -- some on a daily basis -- the European Monitoring Center on Racism and Xenophobia warned yesterday in a new report.

And the very next story, underneath it:

BERLIN -- A production of Mozart's opera "Idomeneo," dropped for fear of a Muslim backlash over a scene with the severed head of the Prophet Mohammed, returned to the stage under heavy security yesterday at Berlin's Deutsche Oper.

The two are not believed to be related.

In other news, the eight gin and tonics I had before the Reverend Horton Heat show last month had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with my later being forcibly ejected by a bouncer.
