Readers' forum: Barack, Muhammad's horse

Published: Monday, July 28 2008 12:00 a.m. MDT

Sen. Barack Obama's middle name — Hussein — should not be associated with a few unpopular characters. The late King Hussein of Jordan was a friend of this country.

Sen. Obama's first name — Barack — is more interesting. Barack (Lightning) was the name of the Prophet Muhammad's horse, which giving a tremendous leap, carried the Prophet Muhammad up to heaven. It would be interesting to have a president named for the Prophet Muhammad's horse.
