Gideon's Blog

In direct contravention of my wife's explicit instructions, herewith I inaugurate my first blog. Long may it prosper.

For some reason, I think I have something to say to you. You think you have something to say to me? Email me at: gideonsblogger -at- yahoo -dot- com

Martin Kramer has revamped his website. It's a lot more readable now. One interesting tidbit I just read there: about Norman Pattiz' efforts behind Radio Sawa and plans for a companion T.V. station to beam American values to the Arab world. He's surprisingly convincing. And the pitch leaves me wondering: why do we need the U.S. government involved, necessarily? I'm not saying it would be cheap, but this would seem to be a no-brainer project for, say George Soros. I mean, this is what the Open Society is all about, isn't it? After doing so much to prepare the ground for the liberation of Eastern Europe, does Soros really want to be remembered for all time as the biggest donor in the history of NORML? Isn't there a lot of world left to liberate?
