  1. Not surprised in the least that they dissappeared the article … subsequent events in Syria must have made it extremely embarrassing for Vogue. I can hardly imagine an article about a dictator’s wife being published in a major fashion mag at a worse time.

  2. I was thinking hat the lovely Benazir Bhutto – trying to democratize Pakistan – was assassinated not too long ago.
