I am too busy to write anything now, as I am slogging through pages and pages of notes trying to see if I have something similar to a dissertation topic. I liken myself to a paleontologist who has discovered a thousand interesting small bones but has yet to find out whether or not they make up one dinosaur. Still, I wanted to alert anyone who may come upon this blog to the fascinating meditation by Juan Cole on the death of Syrian-American producer Moustapha Akkad in the terrorist attack in Jordan. Just go to the entry for Tuesday, November 15. Apparently Akkad was planning a film about the great 12th-century Muslim leader Salah ad-Din, or Saladin.
