Kings of Orient Re-send
Tonight we sing about three kings of Orient. I was thinking of Genghis Khan who apparently is the ancestor of hundreds of thousands of Europeans, thanks to the Mongol horde which snatched land and women during the Middle Ages.
There is good news from Mongolia. The Mongolian Independent Authority Against Corruption has released the Australian lady lawyer who was being held for allegedly organizing bribes for South Gobi Resources, a coking coal producing sub of Rio Tinto. She will spend Christmas at home in Oz. Ms. Sarah Armstrong may be descended from Genghis, but it is hard to tell for women, while easier to tell for men.
More for paid subscribers follows from Mongolia, Singapore, Finland, Canada, and the usual suspects. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good 2013.
