From Rusholme With Love

An Al-Quaida recruit quit his job as a waiter in Manchester to fly to the USA and prepare for the September 11th attacks. Overcome by doubt and thinking of his new wife and child, he gambled away his funds and handed himself in to the FBIwho didn’t believe his claims! (This was early 2000). Upon being returned to Britain, Special Branch lost track of him.

100 Things: Revision

I’ve decided to strike an aim from my 100 Things list- Specifically 94. Visit every Disneyland in the world. It’s not entirely because of their behaviour over Fahrenheit 9/11, but that tipped me over the edge.

I’ve added another aim to the end of the list- 102. Eat in, or from, every restaurant and kebabery in Rusholme. As suggested by Damian.
