The Q-Tip Effect

Jordan's king sacks cabinet
Monarch asks ex-army general to form new government in the wake of streets protests over prices and reforms.

I shall call this the Q-tip Effect... Suddenly, the ears of Arab leaders are CLEAN!

I'm taking a liberty here in that I'm not commenting on the topic but just dropping by to say hello by way of Al-Ma'ari and noting that I share all your listed interests! Rest assured I'm following the news both in the Middle East and Japan and the rest of the world but the speed and pace of the events leave me a bit breathless to follow in detail. Meanwhile, if you want to have a look at my poetry (they don't follow textbook rules)please go to and if you like (or dislike!) any do leave a comment, nasty or otherwise! Second meanwhile, I'm super active at FB under the name of Zaharan Razak and a small group of us have formed Misanthropes Unite! which may resonate with your outlook on the world too. The profile photo is a bust of Al-Ma'ari, btw. Oh, and the oxymoron in the name is intentional. Thank you for lending me your Q-tipped ears, O Leafless One ...
