Nuancing Murder

The Guardian is the leading Brit lefty paper. Its readers are State employees - teachers, government workers etc. Politically, it's to the right of the NYT and BBC but slightly to the left of the Washington Post and Time. And to mark the 7/7 killings, they just hired a trainee terrorist.

I agree - how about "muslims"?
