I know you haven't been here in a long time and so will probably not see this, but...
Happy Birthday Chava!! Hope you have a great day!!
I want to wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas, or whatever holiday you may celebrate.
Hello Ms. Chava
I know you are multi lingual and was wondering if you could tell me how to say "Merry Christmas" in whatever languages you know I'm doing an art project for work
Thanks much! HOpe all is well
. . . . .
I do remember there being something about a price though. Because the newscaster's comment is what made it stick in my memory so distinctly
I assume Rushde is/was Muslim?
Are you familiar with Theo Van Gogh? Seems like a similar situation
The ground beneath her feet - Salman Rushdie. Er, I bought this because the title and the cover appealed so much to me... I'm the worst at judging a book by its cover! jesus. No self control.
It was you who posted it But your post was back in April in the Last book you bought thread
I wonder who posted that then? I'm going to have to go back and look, but I can't remember the thread...
Either way, I was curious about Rushde and his books. What was it that got him in so much trouble? I was very young at the time. Well, I guess you were too seeing as how you're 2 years younger than me :P
But I never looked much into it. Are his books good on thier own, or is it more of a novelty because of the controversy surrounding the content?
I remember distinctly when they put the price on his head, because our local newscaster oh so tactfully said "And you could be a million dollars richer if you find this man!" or something to that effect. Isn't that awful!?
I saw you posted something about having bought Rushde's book. Is that the book that got him into all that trouble with the Muslim community?
It sounds like you didn't much like the book
Funny story in my blog. Think you might get a kick out of it. http://www.online-literature.com/forums/blog.php?b=8365.
