Rushdie threatens critic with baseball bat

Salman Rushdie, 56, snapped after Guy Trebay said Rushdie's wife stood “for a love of money and commodity." Rushdie allegedly screamed at a New York function: “If you ever write mean things about my wife again, I’ll come after you with a baseball bat.” How Westernized of Salman: to properly honor his Indian roots, he should have threatened Guy with a cricket bat. Myself, I think Rushdie should be beaten over the head with a croquet mallet for -- after the classic Midnight's Children -- banging out a more boring oeuvre than Deepak Chopra.

That was RUDE? Hmmmm. Methinks you coulda been ruder still, considering the provocation.

All right. Maybe the croquet mallet should be inserted in his bum. During the Fatwa business, his wife left him because he didn't -- which is what she thought he should do -- use his big platform at the time to agitate on behalf of other persecuted writers.
