The Godsforsaken (probably) subcontinent occasionally inhabited (well, the New York bit of it, which isn't quite the same thing) by TL, who heard someone on Channel Four News refer to it as "the world's only superpower". And is therefore very worried... particularly given the record of its latest potentate, GWB.

Right, I'm moving to Mars. --WJR Possibly a good move... the latest Martian mission is after all going to be an ESA one --TL
