I know I'm gonna regret this but....

Name: Faisal A. Qureshi Source: unca20090314.htm Harlan, you just won an argument with someone who didn't provide or know all the facts but just came up with emotive statements. I mean that's like me winning an argument about the impracticality of shariah law with a foaming at the veiled mouth burq...

Another reason for me to riff on the Coen's

Name: Faisal A. Qureshi Source: unca20090314.htm They rejected my script ten years ago.

Welcome back Rick's spine

Name: Faisal A. Qureshi Source: unca20090314.htm Welcome back Rick's spine. Lemme know if you need a new script. Be back on the 16th. If you still feel withdrawal, ask Brian Siano.

Iranian manulscripts

Name: Faisal A. Qureshi Source: unca20090314.htm Hey Harlan, I think mentioned it as I first heard it from an Iranian film student in 02 who unfortunately was arrested.

Name: Faisal A. Qureshi Source: unca20090104.htm DTS - Don't worry about it dude. Do the terrorists view it as a victory? In my studies, not in any way. Destroying Israel, taking over the Holy Lands and in some cases, recapturing Spain (!?!) would be a victory for the higher ups in these circles. I...
