Dubai's Good Times Come to an End

I've never understood the fascination many people have with Dubai. The whole idea of the place has never really appealed to me. It's one enormous open-air shopping mall, and that in one of the world's most miserable climates. It's the Paris Hilton of world cities, a mockery of what fashion and celebrity once stood for. It seems that even in Dubai, people are starting to catch a whiff of reality.

Coruscant finally bites the dust.

I'm glad, though, that at least 3000 some of the near-slave laborers were able to escape. The ones left behind will, I hope, be making hay with all those abandoned cars.
