Mpls/StPaul Palinites - gathering? by tcoscanyan on 8 December 2005 4:13am
I am a Palinite living in the frozen northland and wondering if any others in the area would like to get together for a holiday gathering. We could meet at some local establishment (Brit's, perhaps?) and have a glass of Glenmorangie...

Respond to this message or directly to me at [email protected] Thanks!
Sleeper Cell by sighthound on 8 December 2005 6:15am
I just watched the third episode of the "Sleeper Cell" Showtime mini-series. It is so good and so important and so overdue! I wish I could grab George Bush and make him watch it. It deals with the many facets of Islam, terrorism and the War on Terrorism, international politics, and the inability of people to understand each other that comes from being unwilling to make the effort. It presents, in a riveting dramatic context, shades of understanding that are totally absent from American mainstream media. And the very compelling hero is a devout Moslem.

It is high time for there to be an intelligent drama on these topics. I wish it were in a venue that would get a bigger audience. It's on Showtime now and ComCast will be putting it on their "On Demand" menu. Well, it will garner many Emmys next year so, eventually, it will be more widely available.

Sorry to co-op your thread, tcoscanyan. I changed the subject line per the instructions and thought it would start a new thread for Sleeper Cell. Wish I were closer Mpls - I'd definitely join in.

Sorry it took me so long to reply, but I too am a Palinite, living in The Cities. Been trying for a long time to get the Michael Palin DVD Box set "Around The World"..."Pole to Pole"...and the Pac rim, but can only find it in Britian, not available for USA players. Any word on when/if that set will be release for US? Thanks
