25 February 2008

As I write this i'm sitting in the car, i'm at a traffic light and i've been here, stopped for almost 10 minutes. The causeway behind me is packed, people are blasting their horns, irritated by having to wait this long.

And why? It's because some royal shaikh or something is supposed to pass by on the road infront of us, and so every single other road is blocked until they make a safe, uninterrupted passage.

Having to do this and cause one hell of a mess on the roads for everyone else, during rush hour no less, can only suggest two things. One, whoever is passing is worried about safety, meaning he might not be liked very much,or two, mr royalty is not supposed to experience traffic jams.

Lets assume the second one. Now why the hell not? Maybe if you guys actually felt a little bit of this ridiculous traffic rush we go through every single effin' day, you might go out there and use your 'powers' to actually do something about the roads.

Oh look, here they go, passing by with no jams or traffic, while we sit here. A good 15 mins after I first stopped, the traffic light turns green, finally!

How is freedom of speech in Bahrain these days?

I guess some folks always get importance than others, sad, really. I once had to sit thru 2 hours in a dingy aircraft in DC(with no air conditioning) with the awful summer heat - whilst Dick Cheney, boarded Airforce 2 and flew away into the sunset.

Take heart, in your own abilities and wonderful liberating thought process, is all I can say for now :) - 'cause there are folks who truly think they deserve to be treated as second class peasants.


woozie - in this context, Bahrain is not bad, not bad at all, compared to the US - so am not sure, what you're laughing at.
