Notes from JWR:

Check out the several new retreat property listings that have recently been added to our spin-off web site,

I owe an apology to Fernando “FerFAL” Aquirre, the editor of the Surviving in Argentina blog. In a recent radio interview, I made reference to some of his comments in the Minion Report Forums, that I had construed as anti-semitic. He e-mailed me yesterday to clarify that he is not an anti-semite, but rather that he is only opposed to Nationalist Zionism. He explained: “I don’t agree with Israel’s foreign policy, which was led until recently by violent Zionist extremists.” He also clarified: “I don’t believe one ethnicity or religion implies superiority over others and I don’t discriminate people because of their last name, skin color or religious belief.” I was glad to hear that.
