Not wanting to claim that I'm particularly prescient these days, but please look at yesterday's post regarding the fury of Dubai, and then check out today's New Yorker magazine.
In the New Yorker's Talk of the Town section a piece described the recent visit by 20 students of the Dubai Women's College to New York University's Tisch school. At a job fair in Dubai, one of the students approached the Crown Prince of the Emirate, suggesting that he personally pick up the tab for the trip. He agreed to do so on the spot!
In spite of Bush's flip-flop of a decision not to veto any bill that prevented the Dubai Ports World deal going through; it seems that the fury of the Emir we so offended has calmed down enought for him to send 20 young women to New York.
Is Bush ever right?
