Is it time? - Bard

We're lucky that they are neither trained nor organized, but as the population of Islam itself grows here in the West, so also does the population of those Muslims that are or will become radicalized.

A Glimmer of Hope - Bard
Last night as I watched the protests, I was impressed by the line of community leaders moving between the crowd and the cops. I heartened to see the group stop one guy cold as he tried to charge the line to get to the cops, and they talked the guy down. What really caught my attention was the gu...
