    Ah hell, I have lived in the Gulf, they have nothing but blue sky and Allah.

    Why not try to block it out?

    Isn't Dubai where Halliburton has relocated its corporate headquarters?

    I belive it is.

    I wonder if in our next war against terrorism, we'll be hiring them?

    I'm tellin's yas, Joe Heller was a prophet.

    I've been to Dubai. It seems that most of the places are interested in being better than the other ones.

    Matter of fact...............check out the discos in the international hotels sometime. Those places are SWANK!!!!!
