In Fifteenth Minute, Terry Jones Promises Not to Burn Korans


The Florida preacher went on the Today show this morning to say that he or his church would never burn a Koran. He said he had canceled the burning to fly to New York and meet with Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf, who told the Daily News that Jones was not on his schedule. In other news, Jones’s hometown of Gainesville complains that he’s embarrassing them. “This guy is obviously a publicity hound and a weirdo,” a 78-year-old at a Panera restaurant told the Times.
