Leban(on)ese glory

Great, so the Lebanese (Lebanonese?) can now revel in the glory of having billionaires (and of snatching the title of “youngest billionaire in the world”) in the Forbes listing…

Hind Al-Hariri is, by the way, a graduate of the Lebanese American University, which I attend. Isn’t that the nicest thing? I mean, to think of the feeling of glory that this privileged girl leaves behind for LAU students to occupy themselves with. What a contribution! Plus, surely she was a “distinguished” student (am yet to hear of undistinguished children of billionaires). I once asked a dozen or so people (lower-middle class and middle class) about the academic standards of LAU, and they all (I am not kidding) replied as follows “Well, Hariri sent his daughter to LAU”.

I feel like I’m beginning to sound like Angry Arab aka Prof. As’ad Abu Khalil…
