Call me crazy, but it really bothers me when a number of the people assigned to watch a particularly troublesome country or region can't pronounce the name of the country, its major political figures, or important geographical fixtures properly. Something about this just doesn't inspire confidence.

Also, here's a collection of articles about things happening in my soon-to-be-adopted-but-only-for-a-year homeland across the pond. Religion in Saudi Arabia, Saudi due process, and Mr. Abdullah goes to the Vatican (without Jimmy Stewart).


  1. Does this mean you're going to Saudi Arabia? Maybe I should read your posts more thoroughly before I comment. :-(

  2. I forgot to tell you that the Chancellor just took a trip to Saudi Arabia. He met with the king. Hilarious story about it...he tried to use his blackberry eticket confirmation as a boarding pass and the security guards at lambert wouldn't let him through.
