    Sam Ambreen is a powerful writer. She has anger in her soul but it is tempered with lucidity of argument. I do not necessarily agree with all she writes but she makes me think and anyone who does that gets top marks from me., I hope you regularly feature her as she is worth reading,. Most definitely. I have not had time to go through the other links and I tend to do so casually on the net because there is so much to access. It is so much easier to read a book as one is only distracted by one page at a time. But I think you have an excellent balance here between your own opinion pieces and links to others. I like that and you write a fair amount so there is always something worthy of comment. I find it hard to find a blog I can get my teeth into. They usually are lacking sufficient quantity but you seem to have it cornered in that respect. So keep it up stavvers as I really like it. It is good stuff
