I'd like to take a moment to welcome my old friend Yousef to the blogosphere. One of my best friends from high school, he is a great writer who is never afraid of controversy. I'm proud to say that I was his first editor when he was on my newspaper staff at the Paladin Press (a fine publication of Paramus Catholic High School). Sadly, his spelling hasn't improved much since...(just kidding--ok, not really kidding, seriously, dude, it's called spellcheck...) but his content is stellar.
Good luck with the blog, Yousef!
