### A scribble with good content

If I tell you that this picture is the cover of a book, what will you think about the book?

I suspect that most readers think that it must be a handbook of terrorism, an attack against infidels, or something like that.

But if you think so, you allowed your stereotypes to predict way too much and much more than what the available evidence actually allows you to predict! ;-)

In fact, it is a very good book, namely the Arabic version of the "Blue Planet in Green Shackles" by Czech president Václav Klaus who just presented it in Cairo, Egypt. Arabic became the 14th language into which the book was translated.

I guess and hope that our leader kind of enjoys these presentations, otherwise your humble correspondent would have to feel bad because he slightly helped to maneuver Dr Klaus into these situations. ;-)
