Off shore journalism?

Hmmm, now that every single object we are using in our everyday life, from toothbrush to underpants is produced somewhere "off shore" resulting in hundreds of thousands of lost jobs, how about this idea: Indians writing local US newspapers - thousand words for only $7.50! For more (amusing but scary) information, see Maureen Dowd's last  Op-Ed:

My dad was right when he said that instead of exporting wealth, we really managed to do the opposite:  import poverty.

Thank God for German language - I will have to start polishing it!
