In no sense.. nonsense

1. Headline in Tuesday's Times of Oman:

Omanisation of English newspapers not imminent

You can almost hear the reporter's sigh of relief, can't you? I don't mind that the press here is all Indian. I mind that they the majority of them write only for Indians. I mind that most of them write in Inglish, not English. And I really do mind that even if I were to cut and paste all three daily English papers into one I still find a need to read the Khaleej Times or Gulf News, and that's for getting just the Oman news, let alone the rest of the world.

I know.. I know.. we're lagging behind. Yes, we've ranked the worst in the Arab world when it comes to freedom of the press. But no one's asked these fuckers to criticize the government. I don't care about that. I'd accept local coverage of the stuff they're allowed to report.

Today, the Times' Thursday magazine is celebrating its 5th anniversary and they have write-ups by every single person who works in the paper. It starts with the chairman and his three sons patting each other on the back, and then it's page after page after page of Indians (and a couple Philipinos). The first Omani appears on page 40!

2. I honestly can't remember what the second thing I was going to write about is :)
