satanic verses

I was a little tongue tied last night on the bill maher show. I think I may have been in a state of paralysis looking across and knowing that my idol, salmon rushdie was sitting there. After the show, I got to speak with him for quite a while about Jerusalem and about peace and religion and women and all the things I like to talk about. I got his autograph too! It was awesome. He is a giant of this century, and it was very humbling.
