Journalism just might work, and sensational, nutty journalism even better, so I'm sending this picture around, to the usual suspects, with two quite different messages:
1) AL QAIDA MAY ATTACK US EAST COAST WITH GLIDERS
2) PENTAGON CONTRACTOR'S SUPER-FIGHTER BOONDOGGLE OVERSHOOTS BUDGET
Which will sell better?

Nemia, nicknamed Agha, is very typical of young girls from the Philippines provinces.
Yes, she is beautiful, and she works in Nine Bar, just down the road from me. And no, she is not for overnight rent , and Nine Bar is not a prostitution joint, thanks to Peter, Pontus, and Frida, who set it up as the most popular bar in GL.
Prof KMS put this photo of a very rare Malaysian orchid up in Flickr recently.
It is actually a flower (Goniothalamus montanus (Annonaceae)), but it unfortunately reminded me of my age.
