Deported from Saudi Arabia for being too handsome

In this edition we look at a Dubai actor, photographer and poet who could be one of the three men deported earlier this month from Saudi Arabia for being too dishy. Religious police took the three guys away from a cultural festival, fearing female visitors would fall for them. Also, we look at the prospects of a continuation of the Bush dynasty. George W. Bush says his brother Jeb should run in 2016. Could there be a Bush Number Three?
