The taste of Underground webs

[ #15734 ]
Dear Log,

« That is to say, more and more countries in Asia, Africa, even Central Europe feel like messy states, where the new institutions of free markets, democracy and the rule of law have not quite taken root, and just below the surface you find a web of corruption, criminality, mafia and a striking absence of any rule of law. Visit Russia or Indonesia today and you’ll get a flavor of what I mean.

This is what it’s like to read Friedman: Open any page in his archives, pick a paragraph at random, and you’ll find two or three different metaphors all jumbled up in Pollock-esque paint explosions.

--"Back at the Wheel: Thomas Friedman just loves to grind the gears"
