Article copySamizdata.net has a pertinent Q&A session going on.
I think I have all the answers too.
Changing the subject: I just found out that the dissident frogman had been discretely bloggrolled by some fine bloggers these past weeks.
So this is not an exhaustive or sorted list (whatever the order), just the unorganised expression of my gratitude to Matthew Cowie at Steamed Dumplings, Bill Peschel at Planet Peschel, Thomas Flynn and his Cocktail Sermons, Kevin at The Primary Main Objective, Captain Mojo in his House of Fun, Bill Ramey and Ernest Brown at Saturn in Retrograde, Robin Goodfellow, Marcus, the Conservative Observer and last but not least, The Diffident Spectator who has a great take on the French German's plan to desperately maintain Saddam in power.
As well as Merde in France, for putting me under their "Great Blogs" section which is driving more visitors here than when I was linked under "Artwork". People despise Art.
Also, I reserved a special place for a special Lady: Zee, over there at Spiced Sass for the link of course, but also for a nice exchange of mails, her kind words when posting about the dissident frogman and her great catch on the French Diplomacy's Secret Weapon (I'm still laughing when I think about it. Very quick-witted Ma Dame).
In case you're wondering, I won't direct you to a permalink because I want you to read everything over there.
She's a very special Lady and that's why you should read everything.
I'm also aware that I've been "killing Neal Sheeran" but I think he's OK now.
I don't know how to call him so I'll use his nickname "jkrank" (from Sofia Sidewhow). It looks like we're both reading each other and enjoying it.
I know I do.
What's more, I had, until recently, a very good chat friend from Sofia, Bulgaria and it's always funny to see that jkrank has a pretty accurate insight of the Bulgarians. And he obviously likes them.
I know I do too.
Finally, although it's not a blog, I found out that the dissident frogman can be found in TheCapitol.Net's recommended books and links (here in the blog section) :
TheCapitol.Net is a non-partisan firm that provides legislative, budget, media, testifying and writing training and information for government and business leaders.I guess all I can say right now is "Wow".
And then attend the Big Braggarts Ball maybe.
But first, I'm going back to deal with that Mecca-Cola issue.
