For Shame (or should I say SHAM) NPR.
Just heard your Morning Edition Report on your reporter's introduction to Dubai.
He gave interesting background on the indoor ski slope, the skyscrapers, the ruling Sheik's passion for being NON-Committed (Politically), as well as the reputation for the city being the largest prostition center in the mid-east*.
YOU FORGOT to mention that Dubai STILL subscribes to the ARAB League's BOYCOTT of ISRAEL.
Quick Reminder of some products from israel that they should learn to live without:
Windows XP and 2000
CheckPoint Firewall Products
And lots more.
*Your choice of Chinese or Russian Prostitutes only, no Islamic women apparently...
