The article in the TOI was not paragraphed. The paragraphs are mine; any awkwardness that results from the paragraph breaks are my fault.

Seems to me that the main things the Saudis need to do is secularize their country, and for the Saudi family to stop running the country as if it were their private preserve (which it actually is).

Of course, I'm pretty narrow-minded about such things.

Does the idea of the U.S. coming up with an alternative to oil have them pondering the loss of revenue?

Important post. We don't often see how intelligent, non-fanatical, Saudis view the world and their own situation. I wonder how well his remarks were disseminated and how they were received.

Most of their kids come over here to be educated, what courses are they taking? What is the average, educated Saudi interested in doing for a living? I don't even know how you'd start finding something to diversify into.
