A small glimmer of hope for the future
Posted by Jill | 5:24 AM
My hope is that for every attention whore cashing in on their parent's fame like Bristol Palin (and yes, sad to say it, Meghan McCain), and every bubbleheaded going-nowhere like Snooki, there's a kid like Jacob Isom:
A planned Quran burning Saturday in Amarillo was thwarted by a 23-year-old carrying a skateboard and wearing a T-shirt with "I'm in Repent Amarillo No Joke" scrawled by hand on the back.

Jacob Isom, 23, grabbed David Grisham's Quran when he became distracted while arguing with several residents at Sam Houston Park about the merits of burning the Islamic holy book.

"You're just trying to start Holy Wars," Isom said of Grisham after he gave the book to a religious leader from the Islamic Center of Amarillo.
