get the look

Do I notice a common style between Nasr City Security Crisis Management Centre and Erich Mielke's office? Lots of blonde panelling, display walls of spook stars.

Of course, Egypt's secret police had both Soviet and East German advisors in the Nasser years, but you wouldn't have expected that to include an interior designer.

I do wonder how divergent Arab and Russian tastes are, given that the Moscow Metro resembles a Saudi horny set and I'm sure there's plenty of dachas with solid gold plumbing.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on why Tom, apparently an SIS guy, got a job in admin with the Al Khadra farm 5 months ago. Remarkable foresight.
