Yesterday was a special day for the House of Saud

King Salman's youngest son, Rakan, just graduated high school.  Sure he is in his 50s, but this scientific accomplishment is a first for the House of Saud.  Previously, Saudi princes were able to finish elementary school, but it is a sign of the genius of Rakan that he finished high school with the assistance of 40 private tumors.  His father, the king, could not contain his emotions.  Saudi watchers expect the next goal for the prince to obtain Nobel Prize in physics or chemistry, having proven his genius by graduating high school.  It was a very emotional day for the King and for me.
