Random thought

I wonder if Halliburton is sorry they committed to building their world headquarters in Dubai last year? Considering the current conditions there, I'm betting they may have overpaid for their real estate.

I saw that story in today's NYT!! Jail for those who fail to pay their debts, wow. So 90% of the population is foreigners, I wonder how many of those are leaving their Mercedes and BMWs in the airport parking lot, abandoning their homes and flying back to their home countries? And with the prospect of debtors prison looming, they are unlikely to come back ...ever.

I'd guess quite a lot of people SoBeale. Why bother to go back anyway if that fancy island is already sinking? I'd bet the refrigerated beach isn't working anymore either.

So much for Dubai as a retirement haven....
