Anyone implying that Hillary Clinton won Iowa by miraculously calling an improbable number of coin tosses is, at this point, willfully ignorant. Willfully, painfully ignorant.
We as Muslims are correct to complain that it is unfair to bracket ordinary Muslims with extremists, but at the same time we need to understand that our negative reputation is not merely due to fringe organizations like ISIS, but also due to our behavior in general.
There is a social institution called education, and there is a faculty called critical thinking that education is designed to hone. It is not a statistical fluke that, on average, the more education Republican primary voters have, the less they support Donald Trump.
Right now Greg Abbott, the current governor of Texas, is doing everything he can to stop Syrian refugees from being settled in Texas. This is because someone told him desperate families fleeing IS are something to be fear.
Darcy Argues', Secret Society is not just rich in contextual sound, but sublime, because it can't help seep through the cracks with passion to make its point. One can hear big band, experimental, jazz, and cinematic majestic phrasing, acutely adjusted to its story telling.
