Prince Salman's rag

So the mouthpiece of Prince Salman and his sons (Ash-Sharq Al-Awsat) was bragging on its front page with a big headline that a book "in the US" has been published on King `Abdullah. So you read further and discover that indeed there is an English language book on the Saudi King by right-wing Iranian-American Rob Sobhani. I went to graduate school with the dude, and we took classes together. We barely exchanged greetings. He was a supporter of the Shah of Iran and I was a supporter of Bakunin.
