News, but not the serious kind
Divan intervention in Libya?
Blog Guy, I rely on your blog for most of my international news, and I’m wondering if you can help make some sense of this thing in Libya. Which side is right?
Well, I’m only speaking for myself of course, but I’ll have to go with the rebels.
Very interesting. You think Gaddafi is a bad leader, or it’s time for a change, or the rebels will be easier to deal with, or….
The rebels have better taste in furniture, which is what it usually comes down to in a civil war.
In this photo at the top, you can see a typical Gaddafi loyalist sofa. Baroque satin, gold paint. Tacky, tacky, tacky…
In contrast, check out the rebels’ sofa. Comfy, indoor-outdoor, well-worn enough so you don’t mind if your guests sit on it with a bayonet.
Thanks Blog Guy, we always get a fresh perspective from you. How long has there been this bitter division in furniture taste in that part of the world?
It goes back to the Ottomans…
