The Week in Review #2: Gas; Bombs; Zizou

!DAME' GASOLINA!

Three countries that export gasoline (can you guess which ones?) have set up a "higher technical committee" to explore the possibilities of creating an OPEC for gas-exporters. Here's your hint for who these nations are:





According to the BBC article, the EU and US are pissed, for obvious reasons. But I think this could be a rather good thing. If nothing else, the electric cars that have been shredded in the desert could be reassembled!



MORE ON THE AXIS OF EVIL


A blogger for PBS has just written a story about how Google has blocked people in Iran and Syria from downloading Chrome, their new browser.

I guess it's all about the bottom line for the Disaster Capitalists .

To cheer me up, I'm going to see Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
