Abd el-KaderAug 06 2010

This very long and very fascinating profile of Abd el-Kader is the best long form article you'll read today, and possibly this week. It was written by a blogger who focuses primarily on the Kansas City Royals (what?). This kind of surprise, a baseball writer stretching out to produce something this special, is one of the things I love about the internet.

Elkader, Iowa, by the way, was founded and named after el-Kader. el-Kader is the only Arab to be so honored.

(Thanks, Jonah!)
