Wikipedia, ergo sum 

To counter rumors that this blog is in fact the idle musing of a cute but middle-aged rodent, I am now pleased to report the publication of an authoritative account.

I believe it was Descartes who originally said in Latin "Wikipedia, ergo sum" ("I am in Wikipedia, therefore I am"), and indeed there he is , so it must be true. And if we go to the same source, what do we also now find?

The Religious Policeman

The Religious Policeman is a weblog written by an anonymous Saudi Arabian man who writes under the pseudonym of Alhamedi Alanezi. The name of the site is a deliberate reference to the Saudi religious police, who are more officially known as the Committee for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice.

Many thanks to "Mike" for his painstaking research into this elusive subject, and for creating the definitive entry in Wikipedia.
