We're baaaaack...!! It's election time in America again, which means it's prime time for nuts, dicks, and boobs! Please feel free to welcome us back by sending any sort of food or - of course - tube socks. Also, it would be fun if you would leave some comments. (Unless, of course, they're negative comments. I mean - who needs that?)

Little Mosque on the Prairie
Back in January, the CBC in Canada started airing the first situation comedy with a Muslim theme. It has been quite successful, and in fact has been renewed for a second season. It's Little Mosque on the Prarie, and it takes a look at a Muslim family in a small Canadian town. The father has decided to move his family there from the big city to become an imam at the local mosque.
Created by Zarqa Nawaz, a Canadian Muslim woman, the show is based on her life growing up as a Muslim in a small Canadian town. It plays on some of the silly sterotypes that people have about Muslims to create humor.
At a time when there is such sensitivity about the subject, this kind of show may be one way to get people to lighten up and re-examine their feelings and beliefs about Muslims.
You have to wonder what Michael Landon would think about the show, though.
