"How does one open doorways to understanding? Use the key of investigation." - unknown

After reading Why American Newspapers are Dying, Part MMCCDXVI by Dan Gillmor, and The forbidden Opus cartoons by Michelle Malkin, take a look at Bakkouz's comments on a new Arab-American comedy taking the world by storm...
If you haven’t seen the Axis of Evil Comedy Tour yet, then you most definitely must. its probably one of the funniest comedy standup routines you’ll ever see. These guys are really hilarious, they take up the issues of profiling in the U.S and being an American Muslim, and tackle issues like terrorism and prejudice, and life for people of Middle Eastern descent in the United States in the aftermath of 9/11.
Undercover Internet researcher Zombie has filed a new report on an important war on terror case that has flown under the radar, Al-Haramain Islamic Foundation v. George W. Bush. Read it.

And, let's turn the blog clock back to January of this year:

Well, if this don't beat all, nothing does! Little Mosque On The Prairie is an unabashedly comedic look at a small Muslim community interacting with the denizens of a little prairie town. The sitcom reveals that although different, we are all surprisingly similar when it comes to family, love, the generation gaps and our attempts to balance our secular and religious lives while trying to understand those of others in the community. (Don't know if this link is still active, but go ahead and Google: I'm sure you'll find it...)

Little Mosque on the Prairie Season 1 Episode 1 CBC - 22 min - Jan 10, 2007

Starring Zaib Shaikh as Amaar, a young big-city lawyer who finds his true calling as an Imam and moves west to become the spiritual leader of the small Muslim community. Carlo Rota is Yasir, a contractor married to Sarah (Sheila McCarthy), a Muslim convert. Sitara Hewitt is Rayyan, their smart, outspoken devout daughter. Manoj Sood ss Baber the former Imam who harbours as many fears about western society as they do about his; Arlene Duncan is Fatima, who runs a diner; Derek McGrath is Reverend Magee; Debra McGrath as Mayor Popowicz; and Neil Crone as the inciting host of a local radio program. EVERY TV show should have an "inciting radio host" as a character!

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
