Juxtaposition

I am always fascinated by the unintended juxtapositions. Take two stories about the experiences of two very different foreigners, newly arrived to Dubai, seeking to make money, in today's Gulf News. In the online version, they are listed one after the other (in the Society section):

[Australian] Supermodel 'blown away' by Dubai
[Bangladeshi] Newcomer to Dubai has his hopes dashed

the Supermodel wouldve got my vote of success if both were put infront of me.

Tough luck Golam, I hope you get your passport back.

Nice juxtaposition. However I don't see why the complete lack of integrity of Golam's relative and compatriot should reflect badly on the UAE. Or maybe that IS the point...
