Big thanks to James for reminding me of this seminal ass sleeve.

And while we are on the subject, big thanks to the French army for getting Timbuktu back from the fundies today and giving the Malians their music back. So much joy and not a bullet fired. Ali Farka Touré will be celebrating in heaven tonight.

But no respect to the fleeing Islamists who, when they heard the French were on their way, desecrated Sufi shrines and destroyed centuries old academic, documents before buggering off through the back gate to hide in the desert sands.

Here's hoping that the future of joyful Islam in Mali is so bright everyone has to wear shades.
