Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
(CNN)Saudi Arabia’s newly formed anti-corruption committee have arrested at least 17 princes and top officials, according to a list obtained by CNN and cited by a senior royal court official.

There is a new sheriff in town named Mohammed bin Salman, that is kicking ass and taking names. The new lawman is going to change the way the business as usual operates. His intentions are to bring law and order back to the desert and eliminate corruption. To me that is a stupendous undertaking and I wish him the best.
I watched an interview with the man the other day and was very impressed with his ambitions to turn things around. He is a diamond in the sand.
Many of the Crooked Knife carriers are multi-billionaires that feel the need for greed. How much $oldi is enough for some of the people?
Among those detained is Prince Alwaleed bin Talal. Forbes has the poor guy’s net worth @ $18.7 billion. No wonder why the guy has to steal; he doesn’t know where his next meal is coming from. Probably stole the shades.
