Yes, some "pastor" in Amarillo caught a Fire Bug from that Floridian fame-hound. "Look at all the news vans!" thought he, "Maybe if I lit a match, I could get my picture tooken, too!"
Things didn't quite work out as planned for the Amarillo "pastor." No one is taking his picture this week (poor guy). Instead, they are taking pictures of this skateboarder.
Steven Spillman, a sensible dude
Spillman heard about the planned burning of the Quran and took care of business in a typical Texan manner (with a Californian twist). While the "pastor" gathered a crowd in a local park, put the Quran on a grill and drew out the moment dramatically, Spillman skated up and swiped the book. What makes this story even better, he skated over to the local Islamic Center and handed it over.
