I really hope my high school classmates don’t plan to burn any Korans, or my name may be in a headline like this:
Terry Jones, the Florida pastor threatening to burn a Koran tomorrow on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, was a high school classmate of Rush Limbaugh….
MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann was one of the first to call attention to the Limbaugh/Jones nexus when he posted news of it on Twitter overnight: ” ‘Rev.’ Terry Jones was classmate of none other than Rush Limbaugh (Cape Central class of ’69). Coincidence?”
Think Progress, NAACP, Little Green Footballs, Southern Poverty Law Center, and the rest of you — you have all the proof you need.
Update: Thanks to a commenter for this:

I think he was valedictorian Class of 1970. If my memory serves me, and was voted most likely to be beheaded. Stay strong brother and make Cape proud!
