("It's not nice to fool Mother Nature" -- and I don't much care for being fooled myself.) The suggestion in the article that another translation of the papers, perhaps by the papers themselves, is a good one, and quite important. Perhaps there is something which CASI and/or members can do to help this happen? Maybe a number of volunteers could be assembled to regularly translate the bulk of the news items and upload them to a central location? Perhaps electroniciraq / intefada or another group could help with this? If a centralized site (arabpress.org or similar?) could be established they could offer e-mailings to the public, and more importantly to the politicians. ________________________________________________________________ The best thing to hit the internet in years - Juno SpeedBand!
