Sharon Stone tells the Arabic magazine, Laha, that she loves the Arabian desert. (In 1993, Al-Hayat newspaper published a full page ad about a contest to select a name for a new Arabic women's magazine. The prize was a few thousand dollars. I sent offering the name, Laha, and even did a calligraphic design. I did not hear from them. They did not announce what happened to the contest. But a few years later, the magazine was launched with the name, Laha, and the calligraphic design was suspiciously similar to the one I had submitted).
