Adebayour, Johan Djorou, Robin van Persie and Thierry Henry was also a Muslim, converted by his English wife. I believe there to be many more Muslim Arsenal players.

Bin Laden supported Arsenal when he studied at Oxford University and has commented that he believes that the camaraderie at a football match between fans and the passion involved is something to behold in itself. He must have been to a derby game.

Lets get back to films, shall we...
I think Spike Lee supports Arsenal as well. He always walks around on set, wearing their shirt.

Don Delillo - Cosmopolis.

Once again, his style intrigues me, but I'm totally unsure whether this was any good at all.

Underworld was the first I read, and is the epitome of "im not sure if this was great, or a wank". Cosmopolis is the third. White Noise I really liked.

Speaking of wank, check out (while its still up) the review of his newest on Radio National.

http://www.abc.net.au/rn/bookshow/stori ... 043714.htm

Whilst being interesting, the guy spends more time playing "I can make 1001 literary references" than talking about the book. Now, though I have not read Falling Man, what else I've read about it seems (and I could be wrong) to suggest some significance in the suitcase. In comparison, it would be like reviewing Underworld and not mentioning the baseball.
