but is anyone else seeing a disconnect in the fact that the United Arab Emirates are hosting the next America's Cup? 'They hate our freedoms' but they love our billionaires and their racing yachts? For that matter, how many Middle Eastern oil billionaires are sponsoring entries?

Well, I wait for the day when the World Series games are played in Osaka and Johannesburg.
