Salman and his baseball bat

The Sun reports that Salman Rushdie recently lost his cool at a journalist who had earlier written that Padma Lakshmi, Rushdie's wife, stood "for a love of money and commodity". Rushdie apparently told the reporter:
If you ever write mean things about my wife again, I’ll come after you with a baseball bat.

And no, it wasn't Patrick French, with whom he had that juicy literary spat I'd written about yesterday, but some fellow called Guy Trebay. Salman's not in a particularly good mood these days, is he? Maybe he's upset at being left out of the Booker international shortlist.
