I was going to write for them but the film(s) destroyed my free time which I could have spent writing blogs. It's a great idea and has so far been very good.

this happens

When I was in Florida this last December I noticed quite an anti Muslim sentiment in the air almost where ever I went. Especially since I was with covered Muslim women for the majority of my trip I felt like the chance of me having to scuffle some hick was extraordinarily high.

When I recently saw this it made me shake my head in disappointment and anger.
