    I have a book of her old interviews, and she is
    one tough dame.

    Henry Kissinger called his experience with her
    the "single most disastrous interview" he ever gave.

    She also interviewed Khomenei, and was required
    by his staff to wear a head scarf. She complained
    about it to him first thing at the start of the
    interview. He told her she could remove it, and
    she threw it on the floor, calling it a "Stupid medieval rag".

    Amen, baby!

    Yep, tough. She fit into New York very well. She's sick, with cancer, but as smart as ever.

    Dark and foolish PC multicultural outlook by you.

    Wise and realistic Western outlook by Fallaci.

    My mistake, and I apologise!

    These captions are a bell/whistle I have never used,
    or paid any attention to. Guess I need to.
