|Man in a Desert||
The New York Times reports that a man claiming to be a senior Taliban commander flew on NATO aircraft, entered the presidential palace in Kabul, discussed peace efforts with president Hamid Karzai and received a "sizable sum of money" for his trouble. Problem is he wasn't the Taliban's Mullah Mansour!
Meanwhile in London, 27-year-old Janis Nords has been tried and sentenced after a spree of fine dining that left 9 top London restaurants footing a $9300 bill after Mr Nords did the old eat 'n run trick.
The slippery epicurean has been ordered to pay the outstanding bills and banned for 1 year from 6 London postcodes, home to many of the English capital's top restaurants.
A man on a long journey through a perpetual desert.
