Yes, amazingly, even the Taliban of Afghanistan have a web site, and
it's quite nicely put together, too. A Lebanese co-worker translated
the RealAudio speech by one of their clerics for me, and we were shocked
by how pro-Saudi Arabian the talk was. The Saudis are financing the
Taliban to act as a counterbalance to Iran, but you'd think the Taliban
would be less obvious about sucking up to their patrons.

P.S. I'm writing from the BA business class from Seattle to London, on
my way to Paris for a 3-day business trip. This is the third flight
I've taken today, but the first one that I plan to land with. (I had my
3rd and 4th sky dives this morning, which both went well. Next Sunday,
I stop using the static line and pull my own rip cord.)
