1. The Qatari government carried out a sting operation against bakeries making obscene cakes. Because, in a country where the labor law is routinely flouted even by prestigious employers like the Qatar Foundation, law enforcement's #1 priority should really be penis-shaped cakes.
2. An Indian maid on her way back to India from Oman lost her passport while transferring through the Qatar airport. Qatar Airways shipped her back to Muscat, but Oman had cancelled her visa when she left, so she spent five days in the airport before becoming delusional and dropping dead. This isn't Qatar's fault, but it's the sort of thing that happens when you have the kinds of immigration policies and bureaucracies that Gulf countries have.
3. The overtly racist nature of Family Day policies at the malls is old news, but this undercover video presents the situation well. Particularly depressing is the fact that the "no Asians" policy is being enforced by a Nepalese guard.
