The same news outlet also reports a funny accident:
Seemingly inspired by the Iraqi man who threw his shoes at President George W. Bush on Sunday, one enraged subway commuter at yesterday's MTA board meeting may have threatened to hurl one of his size 10 1/2 Red Wings at MTA chief Elliot Sander - exclaiming as he reached for his foot, "You made $300,000 last year and this shoe is for you!"However, the actual follow up of the Iraq shoe story is not funny at all as it appears that the shoe-throwing journalist may have been beaten and now, supposedly, demands pardon. This should remind us that, although funny at the outset, the reason and background of it is deadly serious.
