My advice to Gregory Johnsen: stop studying the Yemeni tribes

"“Saleh has had a real problem creating alliances with the sons of tribal leaders in the same way he created alliances with their fathers,” said Gregory Johnsen, a Ph.D. candidate at Princeton University who has been studying Yemen’s tribes for eight years."   My advice to Gregory: stop studying the damn tribes and write that damn dissertation already.
