One thought on “Zaha Hadid (Biografi)

  1. So his “deep affection” led him to make an obnoxious demand that in no way affected his ability to live with whoever he wanted to live with? You see, there is the nub of why people like Grenell are offensive to social conservatives. It’s the fact that they wish to find ways of holding up banners telegraphing their behavioral preferences and their desire to get royal approvals of government sanction for it. And if social conservatives wish to register their objections to it, that is their perogative and contrary to what John Podhoretz says it is NOT unreasonable of them.
