Shafiq is Coming Back

Some of you remember the soap opera that began 10 months ago. Mohammad Shafiq Rahman was arrested by the FBI and Homeland Security for possible connection to the Pakistani terrorist who attempted to explode a bomb in Times Square, New York. Also, the South Portland Police piled on.

Now after serving many months in jail and losing employment here at Artist & Craftsman Supply, all charges have been dropped and Shafiq is allowed to volunteer (no compensation allowed of any kind) to program here once again.

Who knows, maybe someday we can pay this innocent, quiet man for his work. He begins 9:30 on Tuesday.

Welcome home.

Just getting around to your blog posts. This story is a small example of the many things topsy turvy in this country.

Decent of you to do that man, I'm sure you'll find a way to help him. Don't often see stories about people surviving these situations with Homeland Security and staying here, the nation built by immigrants, where people once were welcome. And I'm liking Artist & Craftsman, by the way. I live in Madison WI and met the new manager Gregg the other day--nice guy!
