Some good news for a change.  Via Nick Gillespie comes the word that Patrick Syring, the State Department official who was harrassing members of the Arab-American Institute, has been sentenced to one year in prison for the threats he made against James Zogby and others.  Thanks to the commentary by George Ajjan, I first noted the Syring case last August when he had been indicted.

This is by way of saying that George Ajjan’s blog is an invaluable resource, and I’m glad to see that he has returned to blogging after the unfortunate defeat of Senate primary candidate Murray Sabrin, whom George was supporting very actively.
