They Didn’t Pick Out a Name After the Ultrasound?
I don’t remember who to thank for sending me the link to this Jeff Jacoby column, but you really ought to read it. Read it very closely if you live in Arabia, and even more closely if there’s a “Saud” in your name.
Hashemite Arabia? Kemalite Arabia? Far East Texas Arabia? Pick one — any would be an improvement over “Saudi.”
FULL DISCLOSURE: It saddens me to say such things about the Saudi government. My father-in-law-to-be has a long-standing business relationship with the Saudi government, and formerly a military one. Through him, I’ve heard many good things about a certain Saudi prince, and many very frustrating things about dealing with others.
