    after that volcano eruption in Indonesia impacted on El Nino several yars back. I think that makes me an expert on Indonesia, a country with a lot of Muslims.

    My boss in 1986 short sold a bumch of Union Carbide stock two minutes after the wire had its first report on Bhopal and bought later that day. I'm an expert on India, also because I have a bunch of 60s records with bad sitar playing.

    I did Malaysia in a "meet our new nations" program at church camp when I was a kid - and warned of the threat posed by Sukarno even though I wasn't yet an expert on Indonesia. If you do not think the Malaysia report made me an expert, consider this: During the first wave of condom-mania following the discovering of HIV in the 80s, I paid for a car buying and then quickly selling Malaysian rubber futures. A Malaysian student of mine years ago gave me a Cross pen in celebration of Eid,which if you're in a non-Muslim country I guess you're supposed to do for somone who makes a point of making you feel welcome or something. I don't know, but I know Malaysia.
