Yeah, More Time with the Family, that’s the Ticket

by Clifford D. May

Reuters and CNN are reporting that Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the United States, Prince Turki al-Faisal, has resigned his post after just 15 months on the job and returned home.

Why would he do that? “He wants to spend more time with his family,” said an embassy official, who asked not to be identified. 

Yeah, being an ambassador, living in a mansion in Virginia, commuting by limo to the embassy, attending cocktail parties (and drinking only Shirley Temples and Virgin Maries) takes so much time away from the wives and children.
