Ramadan Special # 4
Tonight on Ishtar TV there was some discussion of the Babel Festival back in 2001. The only information I could find was this article from 9/11/2001.
I really enjoyed Mrs. Toad here because she was getting a little wistful when a man from Mosul called from Sweden. She guessed right away (I assume from his accent) and they started reminiscing away together about how the city once was. The whole scenario of exiled Mosulites talking out some nostalgia regardless of who was watching, who her studio guests were or who was paying for the airtime struck a tackily poignant chord in my grinchy little heart.
And you know who she REALLY reminded me of?
