I've managed to beat back the flu that was sapping my life force, and have returned that job to my lawyers, where it belongs. While I was ill my friends in the UAE arranged to clear up the misunderstanding that had caused me to beat a hasty retreat from the region some weeks back, and an offer was forthcoming to teach a course in "Life Dynamics," whatever that means, at the Dubai City Learning Annex. So I've decamped to the shores of the Persian Gulf once more, where life is cheap, but thank God, so are the cocktails. Will update as opportunities arise. If you happen to be in Dubai City, call ahead before you drop in on my class. You would not believe the penalty they assess on unauthorized auditors. And one more thing: Radio station KAGM/KBOM, in the lovely towns of Albuquerque and Santa Fe back home, has for some reason expressed an interest in talking to me. I'll be appearing with afternoon host Lee Logan today at about 3:30 local time, which is 2:30 on the West Coast, 5:30 in the East and 1:30 AM Tuesday in Dubai. You can listen live here. That whirring sound you hear in the background will likely be the blender at the lobby lounge at the Jumeirah.
