on shane warne

so he's retiring. and one hopes there is no one else like him. after all genius should be a one off.

did you watch the last day in adelaide? shane pulverised us. with his mind. no other bowler today could have turned around that test.

never has dylan thomas been more apt for a sporting genius

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Immigration and national economies.. random thoughts

after a recent visit to the US, realised that English must be one of the least spoken languages in the subways..which is no surprise given that it is a country built by immigrants. the diversity of thought and determinedness of immigrants can be seen in the USA.

which brings us to China and India. I am gung ho about both these countries, but where will they bring in the variety in society half a century from now? both countries are too populous to have immigration.
