Would USA TODAY let someone like this write an article about ALL ‪#‎Christians‬ and post a link to the leader of the Church of Scientology as representing all of ‪#‎Christianity‬? Definitely Not! Then why would that be done to ‪#‎Muslims‬? http://j.mp/1UUxeMK
The good news is that the writer of this article makes valid points about how ‪#‎Islam‬ was instrumental in emancipation of slaves and women in the old Middle East region 1500 years ago. But the bad news is, she is throwing in a link to some supposed leader who has nothing to do with Muslims around the world.
While USA Today can be lauded for presenting the historic facts of Islam the writer alludes to, but I am amazed that a particular person representing a group that many Muslims do not even consider real Muslims, is being labeled as representing all Muslims! Mind boggling and perhaps deliberate?
That so called ‪#‎Khalifa‬ is just a different insidious version of what the people of ‪#‎ISIS‬ / ‪#‎ISIL‬ are violently doing... claiming they are putting in place a Khalifa (Caliph) of Islam for all Muslims. Thanks but no thanks, to both attempts to hijack Islam, either by terrorists or those that claim false prophethood.
Shame on USA Today for doing their work for them in the guise of balanced journalism.

Meteor Shower - IMRAN™
Just the sight of one of last night’s shooting stars inspired me to type out this poem on my Twitter app at 3AM today standing under the majestic moonless dark night sky. As I stepped out of the house to soak in the Perseids meteor shower, one of the longes...

Jumping Jacks! Fish & Dragons Fly in real life. Dragonflies hover in air as bunch of fish leap from stunningly tranquil glass-like flat clear as bathtub water Tampa Bay waters in Florida right now! Each ripple is a fish jumping and falling back in the water. St. Petersburg shines across the bay, seen from my home in Apollo Beach.

I love that this is 24 hours so even when I fly in from NY late at night I can go straight there and pick up milk (only to realize I have frozen containers at home already :) ), cereal, vitamins, even Campbell's Chili, and sundry items from batteries to cables to WD40. Always very helpful staff.

Clean, mostly well stocked and mostly very helpful staff. Wish it was 24 hours like a few others. Sometimes their specials are truly great prices. Other times the convenience factor makes up for the prices.

My then girlfriend got me a Groupon for this place. By the time I actually got to use the Groupon (because of poor responsiveness) she and I had actually split up, got back together, and split up again! When I finally did get a massage the young lady Kayla who did my massage was so awesome I became a regular because of her. Then she left. I did not make it to my Apollo Beach place for a month and in my early January trip I found the place had closed down. O, Kayla, Kayla, wherefore art thou, Kayla? :-) Imran

I gave this place two tries over a one year period with two separate lovely lady friends. And both times I was underwhelmed by the service, disappointed by the quality, annoyed by the relatively high prices for mediocre sushi and swore never to come back. I am now sticking to that decision. Imran
