MOSQUE AT "GROUND ZERO," USA.

While this is an American story, I'm wading into it because of comments I have received. Some of them are very troubling to me, not as an American, but as a human being.

Being a journalist by training and trade, I'm approaching the story of the Cordoba Centre from multiple perspectives — everything from a brief understanding of Islam, to how Islam is being seen in the world today (particularly North America). This Center is a flashpoint for some much larger issues. We need to consider those.

This is simply a link to a story in another of my blogs. I'm still interested in your responses of yesterday's post, "Telling it Like it Is," in terms of having "dedicated" blogs, and linking items from here to the others.

Your comments are helpful.

I am whizzing through all my favourite blogs just leaving a quickie to say how pleased I am to be back again.

I hope that you are feeling better now Rob. Normal comments will be resumed asap

Hope you're having a good time in your new location. I'm sure it Kent be too bad!

Rather cool site you've got here. Thanks the author for it. I like such themes and anything connected to this matter. I definitely want to read a bit more soon.

Ouch at the pun :)

By the way, just to set the proverbial record straight, I never participated in any of the naughty films the video company produced. I was too busy being the naive face of innocence on the front desk

It is up to you what you choose to blog about. There aren't any rules as long as what you write is clean.
