Goodbye, Emmanuelle

Good Morning. Several new items today.

  • If Tocqueville was riding around America today, would he call it a democracy? See Pierre's Tuesday Column, "American Apartheid."
  • Who are the real predators? The Christmas season brings them out, and it's all about marketing to children, the new frontier of marketers' predatory skills. See "Emmanuelle's Children..."
  • Candide's Notebooks contributor Ohdave reviews Enemy Combatant, the memoir of a Pakistani-Briton held at Guantanamo for three years. See "Inside Guantanamo"
  • It's not just Arabs who lie about maps and boundaries in textbooks. Israel has been in on the act, too. See "Israel's Textbook Duplicity"
Plenty more in Candide's Daily Journal. Thanks for reading.pt
