    Ah yes, of course, all those moderate terrorists....

    ETA: Sorry, I do see what you mean, but I also think the word 'extremist' is often synonymous with terrorist. It doesn't get much more extreme, does it?

    Destiny Deceived - Internet serial story. Written by one of the best writers I have ever been.

    "Having been an English literary graduate, I've been trying to avoid the idea of doing art ever since. I think the idea of art kills creativity. I think media are at their most interesting before anybody's thought of calling them art, when people still think they're just a load of junk"
    Douglas Adams
