Aladdin, ambassador of peace. Just a minute ago on the CBC’s As It Happens, they mentioned Chopra’s proposal to build a Disney theme park in the Middle East, to “help the children relax and understand Western Culture.”
“Gina de Franco, who organized the [Quest Magazine Mardi Gras] festivities [at Man Ray], wore tropical flowers in her hair and Halston couture. She chatted over dinner with Deepak Chopra about his four new book launches for 2003.” Ahh, four book launches. Now I get it.
