If a stealth bomber crashes in the woods and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?
THE world, some of you may have noticed, has gotten to be expensive. I remember when a billion used to be a lot of money. These days, it just isn't enough to get by.
It was the French that put me onto this train of thought. While craftily diverting this continent's attention to the World Cup draw in Paris, they proceeded to sneak into Cape Town.
That's right -- "sneak". They rocked up on a stealth frigate.
