Qatar exceptionalism

Qatar exceptionalism


Apparently Philadelphia and the rest of the U.S. of A. have forgotten how to do what we once did better than anyone else in the world: Bribe foreign functionaries with massive amounts of cash. The result: There will not be a World Cup game at the Linc in my projected lifetime.

If only we'd gotten Dick Cheney involved!

Meanwhile, if you're wondering why you pay so much at the gas pump, apparently it's to build soccer stadiums shaped like overcooked slices of french toast, like the one shown at top.
