I'll guess that he's safe, but very busy.

He's in Bahrain, isn't he? There is some considerable political unrest occurring there, and it might be pre-occupying his mind. With reports of around 200 people being shot by government forces, the atmosphere might not be conducive to cycling or conversing right now.

Sometimes those middle eastern countries disrupt internet access too.

Thank you for your concern, I really appreciate it - and at the same time, I don't feel I require it.

I won't go into my perception of what's occurring, that'd be more a P&R than a 50+

But I'm still at work, and still organising for 2011 100 international scholarships in Texas, London, Melbourne, Cape Town - most of which are going to the societal group called the 'discriminated against'

Scheesh

Thanks, once again, for your concern, friends

What is being shown on tv is more like UK football hooligans and LA children who wear funny badges on their jumpers. They're easily recruited and directed
