Okay, I have to admit it. I’m backlogged on this blog. A number of people have written wonderful comments that deserve responses, but I haven’t had a chance to catch up. I just want everyone to know that I really appreciate your contributions and support. It really means a lot, really. I’ve made some meagre attempts to respond here and there. But I have found that I’ve spent too much time engaging in polemical debates, and flamewars, in my comments sections. That has taken away from developing more engaging conversations to thoughtful comments. So I apologize, especially to those who left questions or were inviting dialogue. As for some of my more lenghthy comments in blogistan, I hope to fully develop some of ideas I have expressed in the past and make them full blown blog entries.
With that in mind, I also wanted to say that there have been a number of issues that I would like to address more. I have been following the Jena 6, the Dunbar gang rape case, and the West V.A. torture case. I plan on writing about Blacks and the Justice system. I still have to write about the 08 Presidential Race, Graft in US bases in Kuwait, Female Genital Mutilation in Africa and in Muslim societies, the Bleaching cream ads in India and the Middle East. As for my travels, I am planning on writing a detailed essay on maids in Kuwait, my observations on the African Diaspora in Kuwait, and American privilege in the Middle East. Plus, I hope to keep regular postings with daily musings and meditations on a number of subjects. So, I apologize for the irregular postings. I also plan to work on adding tags to all my entries and cleaning up a few old ones. So please check back often.
