A city mayor in Spain has refused to bow to intimidation by Muslims in response to the breaking up of property illegally being used as a mosque. The city offered another property to Muslims for religious properties, but was refused.

However, I’m old enough to have tried the old USGI test, actually paind no heed to DDT sprinkled on food. My granddad used it on his farm, used to buy it powdered in twenty-pound tins. I had a close relationship with DDT from around 5 until they went crazy and took it off the market.
