first killer quote from bruces rant
"My guess is that, among your list, Dubai has got the best chance to be
called "quaint" one of these years. It's built on oil and
autocracy.... its got a phantom-like, Fatehpur Sikri feeling to it,
like a Las Vegas desert dream. Maybe it can thrive as an offshore
colony for India. In much the way that, say, Vegas seems really sexy
and sophisticated to someone from Omaha.
