I didn’t get my usual nine hours of interent browsing today, as I was off work, spending most of the day slacking at Starbucks. However, the little time I spent online today was rewarding due to a number of interesting blogging articles. Here is a wrap up:

  • Subzero blue reports that Tunisia has renamed one of its streets after late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat. The name they’ve chosen is “Boulevard du Leader Yaseer Arafat." They are quick aren’t they?
  • Chanad Bahraini talks about the broken marriage of the US marine and the Bahraini princess [article here], whose controversial union made it to the big screen some years back. Who said fairy tales last forever?
  • Chanad also highlights a new Saudi fatwa, or religious edict, in which it was determined that it is haram, or against the teachings of Islam, for a woman to browse the internet without a male companion. Those Saudis! When will they wake up and realize they are living in the 21st century?
  • Mahmoud contented himself with the Bahraini student demonstration against calls to segregate Bahrain university and impose a dress code. The Bahrainis are quite vocal, aren’t they?

Ok, that’s it for now. Gotta get some sleep.
