Today's column, "loved your minds", contains these old chestnuts:
- El Naschie is emotional and passionate.
- Though he spent years abroad, he loves Egypt.
- He works out scientific problems in his sleep.
There are these perennials from some of his other recent columns:
- El Naschie's a theoretician, while Ahmed Zewail is an experimentalist.
- ElBaradei (or whoever El Naschie disapproves of) is a Zionist tool or American lackey.
- Schools are better than hospitals.
- El Naschie's father was an army officer.
- Benign dictatorship is good for Egypt.
He hasn't written that Egypt should invest in nanotechnology research, but as surely as the sun rises, he will.
For the interest of the readers of Rosalyousef Daily and El Naschie Watch, and for the sake of his job as a pundit, I hope he finds some new things to say.
A bit off topic but still on the subject of that newspaper, here's a column (English or Arabic) that rendered me speechless. The reporter interviewed some Arab women judges. One was described as "A female in every sense of the word... Beautiful, thin." Questions were asked about feminine emotionality, balancing work and home life, what her husband does for a living, and whether she wears makeup on the bench! To all appearances, she did not take offense. Cultural standards as to appropriate questions to ask powerful women differ from place to place, apparently. I don't know how it works everywhere but in the USA you simply must not go there. An imprudent American reporter recently asked Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi about her Giorgio Armani outfit. Duh! What could he have been thinking? He was met with icy contempt.
