The Weather In Oldham

We took Nakisha to the madrassa last night and there were daffodils in bloom on the central reservation of Ashton Road. I was surprised and excited to see them but Nakisha- speaking with the wisdom of experience- said that they'd been there for days. I told her I don't get out much. There was cherry blossom at the roundabout.

Some people have moved into the house three doors down who play strange unIslamic music. I asked Nakisha if she knows who they are and she said she thinks they're Italians because they say "Ciao" a lot. Italians! That's really exotic for round here.

We talked about the bombings in Boston. Ailz had been in a taxi that afternoon and the Pakistani driver said the Muslims will be blamed as a matter of course. He quoted a Koranic text which says if you take one life you kill the whole of mankind.
