MercatorNet Weekly Update

Hi there,

There are lots of things happening this week,
but the big news story has been the release
of the long-awaiting film of The Da Vinci Code.
We decided to have a special issue for the occasion.

In addition to the three articles posted this week,
we have also posted a in-depth backgrounder on
this theme as well.

Cheers,
Michael Cook

Despite the hype, the year's most-awaited film
is unlikely to win any Oscars.




A DA VINCI CODE FAQ
By Richard Umbers
