I heard this morning that a Belgian citizen is suing the publisher of Tintin to make "Tintin au Congo" forbidden, because of the colonial/racist representation of the book you know. And the guy on tv said that Hergé wasn't racist and that "Tintin au Tibet", published a few years later, was clearly anti-racist. It's a serious topic, and yet I had a silly smile on my face cuz it made me think of "Satin au Tibet"

hergé's friendship with a chinese inspired Chang if i remember, and it's clearly a more subtil piece of work than "tintin au congo" (or "tintin chez les soviets" )

"Tintin au congo" and "Tintin chez les soviets" are his first books I think. And it's indeed.

Yeah because they were both written at times when people were fooled by Governments' politics. He already modified some texts of "Tintin au Congo" years after the first edition, and apologized for making the colonial/anti-soviet feelings of Belgium at the time influence his work. But it's still a touchy subject. In normal days I would have taking it seriously too, but this morning I was "aaaah, Satin au Tibet! "

Marat Safin's eyes on Australian Open
MARAT Safin is confident of making a full recovery for January's Australian Open after abandoning the rest of 2007 with a fractured wrist.

The 2005 champion has been cleared of structural damage as he starts an attempt to climb one of the world's highest mountains in Nepal.

Inconvenienced all year by a stress fracture in his left arm, Safin has not won a tournament since toppling Lleyton Hewitt in the centenary Australian Open final.

The Russian last played at the US Open, where he was beaten by Swiss Stanislas Wawrinka in straight sets in the second round.

"I felt again the pain in my left wrist, the same one that first started bothering me in 2003," Safin said.

"My orthopaedic surgeon Dr Feder from Los Angeles flew into New York and examined me after the match.

"His diagnosis was a relief for me. He said I will only need 4-6 weeks rest.

"Luckily no extra damage had been made and I should be completely fine after that."

Now coached by Argentine Hernan Gumy, Safin has withdrawn from tournaments in Mumbai, Tokyo and Moscow.

The former world No. 1 and current world No.27 is in the Himalayas preparing to climb the 8201m Cho Oyu.

Dear fans

I am writing this letter on behalf of Marat who has been in touch with me in the last 48 hours and asked me to pass on this message to you all.

As you know Marat has taken an interesting step because of various reasons which he explained in his letter to you last week. And it has been an adventure - doing his acclimatisation climb and getting used to all that is part of climbing mountains.

The delegation has reached the next height of moving to the base camp for Cho-Oyu and at this stage Marat has realised several points.

First of all Marat realised that this climb is a very serious challenging issue and not just an adventure. He loves the experience and is fully into it but realises that it has to be treated with great caution and respect. And the next step is a very big one indeed.

Talking to me and to the people he is closest to in the delegation and his coach via satellite phone - he has decided that the smartest and bravest decision for him is to step down and to start a very long 5 day trip back to travel down the mountains and back to Moscow.

In Moscow he will meet next week with Hernan Gumy and after a week recovering from the altitude, he is meant to start practising again in about 2 weeks time. The wrist is well rested and all being well he will hopefully play again in Madrid.

Marat doesn't believe he will be ready in time for the Kremlin Cup although he would like very much to play there. He needs time to recover from what has been an exhausting experience. From my conversations with him I was happy to discover that he has had a tremendous time and it was a fascinating experience.

Now it would be Marat's main concern to be healthy and play professional tennis again soon as he misses it very much. We can soon expect to see Marat back on the circuit hungry for success and with a new fresh look at tennis.

I know it is very important for Marat to pass this message on to his fans and to say they will now be able to see him in the last part of the Indoor season and I can do this with delight.

Marat wants to thank all the great and amazing people in the delegation and his wishes that they will complete the challenge to the end.

While Marat is starting his long trip back - his fellow Russians will be playing in the DC semi finals against Germany and he sends wishes to them from the bottom of his heart for great success.

Best Regards

Amit
