Oriana Fallaci

I read Fallaci's latest book, The Force of Reason. It was pretty funny because of her irony but mostly sad. Unfortunately too much like conspiracy theory. I liked Interview with History much better. Although that book is at least twenty years old.

Milan Kundera, not a lightweight either called her the pioneer of modern journalism.

Anyway her book introduced me to another Belgian idiot: professor emeritus in economy Louis Baeck. Who claimed that the founder of economic science is Mohammed, and not Adam Smith. Yeah, knowing the Belgian logic, I wouldnt be surprised if this guy gets hired for a commission on economic reform. We already know from the previous statement how successful it will be.
