    A good friend of mine ran the Saudi embassy (as a Marriott employee) when Prince Bandar was ambassador, and while I never met him, my friends frequent references to the Prince indicated that he was a man with good taste and an insightful mind. This only goes to support that contention.

    On the down side, he’s friends with Jerry Jones (currently, the sole remaining member of that organization who needs to be fired), so maybe the above opinion is unfounded.
