Beginning September of 2015 this site will be exclusively dedicated to wrestling, boxing and St. Louis politics and culture. The plan is to eventually take my wrestling and boxing coverage over to my new site dedicated to combat sports.
This blog began primarily focused on Islamic topics and particularly those relating to American-Muslims in addition to other random observations. It was once the number one blog by an American-Muslim; but I’ll no longer be addressing Muslim topics here. When I do decide to write on those topics it will be for Muslim publications.
