You can't choose your high school classmates

From everything I have heard, Cape Girardeau, Missouri is a great town -- a historic river city, whose residents love it (I have a friend from "Cape" as they call it). The town is most famous as the home of Rush Limbaugh and his brother, David, who is the author of the current number one best seller, Crimes Against Liberty.

But it turns out that Cape is also the home town of America's currently most notorious preacher, Terry Jones, who threatens to burn Korans this Saturday. Even worse, Jones and Rush Limbaugh were both members of the Cape Central High School class of 1969.  A local history site has the photos to prove it.

Rush Limbaugh USED to be Cape Girardeau's most prominent export. One of his classmates from the Central High School Class of 1969 is dominating the news right now: Terry Jones, the Gainesville, FL, preacher who is threatening to hold an "International Burn a Koran Day" on September 11.

For the record, Rush does not support the Koran burning, and thinks the whole incident is a distraction. But that won't stop lefties from trying to slime him with this random connection.
