Dalrymple recently received the following email scam, which he compares – favorably – to one sent by his bank:

Dear I am honorably seeking your assistance…to make arrangement for me to come over to your country to further my education and to secure a residential permit for me. I want you help me not because of the 30 percent I want to offer you but to take me as your adoptive child and take good care of my life.

    This comment is not in relation to the article that is referenced but I was curious to know if the readers of this blog are aware that a good number of Dalrymple’s older New Criterion articles are available on the free library website(http://www.thefreelibrary.com/). One can search under Authors by typing in Anthony Daniels or Theodore Dalrymple. Maybe these articles can be referenced on this site as well?
