Nice JPEG on the “web is dead” article, Paddy, thanks for delivering the eulogy. We can bury it next to print. How about we tape record you reading it, build an audio-animatronic statue of you, and add it to the hall of presidents? I’d pay a quarter for that.

I visited UAE back in the Summer of 2004. Things were a little different back then. There wasn’t as much construction, and you could find a Coca-Cola for only a buck. Nowadays, you would be lucky to find such cheap drinks. I am positive that the workers in Qatar are trying to cover up some of the most scandalous human indecencies in the past 25 years, it is no wonder that you were suggested to ignore part of the area that as under construction! When I visited the American University in Dubai, I was greeted with a warm towel and offered a glass of Evian water. Today, I would be lucky to be greeted with only a rude smile, and perhaps a noisy Iranian calling card! There are only three types of people in this world: One, those who talk, Two, those who do. I fall into the first type. I joined Amnesty International in the Summer of 2003 to try and fight part of the biggest problem facing UAE today. That is, the rise of the Petro Dollar, and the Qatar 2022 Football Games. Peace be with the people of Dubai.

Paddy. I love this blog and read it religiously. Why are you posting the video of people killing that boar?

Whitney will have a better answer to this question than me, since she posted the video. I find it kind of disturbing.
