Twenty-five years ago, Salman Rushdie was forced into hiding for the act of writing a novel. The fascist thugs who made this happen felt their religion gave them the right to kill someone who "insulted" them. I remember standing in a crowded loft and watching PEN president Susan Sontag address the press, talking about "our refusal to be intimidated." Christopher Hitchens called Khomeini a "senile old dictator," Joan Didion read from THE SATANIC VERSES, *** Talese (embarrassingly) recited the Our Father prayer. Also speaking: Diana Trilling, John Gregory Dunne, Don DeLillo, Edward Said, Frances FitzGerald, Norman Mailer, E.L. Doctorow, among others. Outside, we heard angry crowds--who happened to be pro-Rushdie counter demonstrators shouting down the smaller anti-Rushdie crowd. Sontag and Hitchens, now dead, were particular heroes in the Rushdie cause. When I recently saw Rushdie coming out of a cineplex, it made me very happy that he's alive and well and free to do something as mundane as come out of a ci ...
