William Blum's Rogue State: A Guide to the World's Only Superpower has shot up to no. 27 on the Amazon Bestseller List after Osama recommended it to willing listeners on his latest tape.
To gauge the extent of the jump, the rating for the book before the endorsement was a galactically distant 205,763.
Osama, if you are reading this, I promise to beat the hell out of Bush on this space from now on. But please, for the love of god, let me be the (next) one!
It's patrakaar with a double 'a' (patrakaar is Hindi for journalist).
