This week’s posts will be brought to you by the color BLUE.

Mention of the Diego Garcia base re missing Malaysian Air flight reminded me I once profiled the PM of Mauritius, a country often tragically confused with Mauritania, much to the dismay of both nations.

More about plight of evicted indigenous Diego Garcians here.

Domino is BACK, betches! In print, too, not the lame online version.  

Had I imagined for a second that this would happen I would’ve left mine intact.
