Imagine silence for sale

If everything was included in the Trade Related Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) agreement of the World Trade Organization and some rich tycoon just decided to patent silence...

Or do I have to qualify?

Levi's 501, anyone?

As issues come before me -

the outright slaughter of democracy in Nepal by its own king,

the lives of gem workers in China worth little less valuable than the gems they mine for the jewellery company Lucky International,

the case of my friend's Lupus-stricken father,

the domestic workers here calling for wage increase, just about the right thing to do when they receive less than what they deserve and work for,

- I realized how unimportant having a 501 is.
