    Two shoes was not enough.

    Wasn’t it Andre Brenton and the surrealists who started all this by throwing cream pies at politicians in Paris in the 1920s, Barry?

    The throwing of shoes must be a middle-eastern thing. I also know of the tradition of little European ladies taking off one shoe, then beating whomever they are angry with senseless with it (particularly my Eastern European, Ex-Mother-In-Law, Olga).

    Still, you have to feel for this guy that threw the shoe (hey, that rhymes): two years in an Iraq jail for pelting Bush with his footwear does seem a bit harsh. Why not just pull out the US troops and call everything even?
