Bombs Over Baghdad, Golf Balls Over Dubai

Great article by Jim Caple of ESPN.com on the nation of Dubai, a desert oasis that is one of the United Arab Emeriates. This place seems to have it all: beautiful setting, no taxes, heavy corporate investment, and an emphasis on sports and sports culture (Dubai is a welcoming place for American tourists and expatriots alike). They're even building islands! All of this comes thanks to refreshing new way of thinking that shuns the fanatacism and fundamentalist (no fun) mindset that has casued much of the turmoil in the Middle East. With few oil reserves (oil production made up on 6% of Dubai's GNP last year), Dubai has prospered by embracing a free-trade, pro-western mindset, and the world is quickly taking notice. The aspirations of Dubai's rulers are lofty, but if your country is already building islands, what can't you do?

Used golf balls are balls that have been recovered. Some may be described as "reformed", but have just been cleaned, if reputable companies described cleaning balls used as "clean." True recovered bullets were removed and replaced the hood. Most quality balls at least two blankets and a maximum of four. The top cover is dimpled and are made of a thermoplastic resin difficult. This can be stripped and replaced with the production of golf balls recovered.

I seldom leave a response, however after reading through some of the responses on "Bombs Over Baghdad, Golf Balls Over Dubai".
I actually do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind.

Could it be simply me or does it look as if like some of these comments appear as if they are written by brain dead folks?
:-P And, if you are posting on additional social sites,
