Rumors of my death...

... have been greatly exaggerated. Hmm, I guess a five-week hiatus is more than enough, so now, how about some new beginnings for 2004?

The Blogspeak comments system is dead. Very sad, I must say, but it was nice to find that my account with all its comments was rescued by Haloscan! How fortunate.

I am alive, healthy, and haven't forgotten my loyal readers. Yes, all three of you can count on me to bring you the latest updates from the Arab street. How could I possibly let the teeming masses of my mono-digit readership lose faith?

A lot of stuff has happened and I've got plenty to get off of my chest, so stay tuned for some genuine grumbling, moaning, complaining and general hissing about quite a few domestic and international issues that have managed to annoy me this past month plus.
