    Adnan Khashoggi

    Saudi arms dealer who had 11 wives. He got caught up in the Iran-Contra affair back in the 80s and held some great parties.

    I'm surprised he had time for all that stuff; what with 11 wives and all.

    Damn - it's a good thing he was a Saudi.
    If he had been a Yank he'd have had a "Honey Do" list from hell.

    And just imagine being asked, "Does this dress make me look fat?"; 11 times, back to back by different women.

    There is a great line in the film The Belles of St. Trinians when a Saudi billionaire who wants to send his daughter to the school asks his secretary to clear it with her mother first. "Her Mother?" "For goodness sake look in the files!" And the camera pans to a row of filing cabinets. Very funny.

    Here was a reporter who lived the knife edge job of investigating and telling the truth. The Saudi's are not known for their liberal democracy, and here's a man who paid the ultimate price.
    Politicians don't like the press for obvious reasons.
