FZ or Zakaria Filles
Fareed Zakaria was on Forum [on KQED, with Michael Krasny; see sidebar] this morning. (http://www.kqed.org/programs/program-landing-local.jsp?progID=RD19) He is a really interesting case. For the most part, most of the Average Joes and Jills in the Muslim community consider him a sell-out—as one caller said to him in that show—but when you listen to him, he's actually saying a lot of things to the Average American that need to be said. And presenting them in a package (he himself being the package) that they can relate to.
