O' for the delicate fabric of society

As the summer tourist season draws to a close, Dubai Police no doubt breathe a cautious sigh of relief after their efforts to keep ye "fabric of society" fluttering unblemished by visitors did not go in vain.

In coordination with the consulates, Dubai Police are seeking the cooperation and adherence of tourists in preserving and maintaining the norms of the country especially those that violate the very fabric of society such as expressing intimate feelings in the public places which is punishable by the country’s law.

Given the delightful event that is Dubai Summer Surprises seeks to educate our young ones about foreign cultures - among other things - it was eye-opening to hear of a DSS event where they could learn more about (and I quote) "Red Indians". The link to relevant GN article now expired of course.

Reading recent news articles will leave you feeling it is National Lunacy Week, with tales of wild threesomes, slap-happy dentists and lewd acts incited by the devil in great abundance.

Perhaps the tourists are not to blame for the gentle ripping of society's glorious fabric?
