On Hiatus

We’re going to take a short break here at QN, seeing as how not much is happening in Lebanon these days besides the odd clash between Ahbash and Hizbullah gunmen, a pending indictment by the U.N. Special Tribunal for Lebanon, prospects of severed Congressional funding for the Lebanese Army, and a handful of other inconsequential news items.

To those of you debating each other in the comment section of the last post (over 300 comments at last count!), might I humbly propose that you go outside and enjoy what’s left of the summer? As stimulating as this forum is, it surely can’t beat a game of backgammon and a tall glass of lemonade.

I’ll be back in a week.

  1. Okay, now that we have a new post I wanted to make sure to take credit that during that “hiatus” period I posted the first comment, kept stimulating the masses, and, unless someone really wants to break my heart (;-)), posted the last comment. Welcome back QN!

  2. HP,

    You do have an addiction problem. 🙂
    Now as for the honor of posting the last comment during the “hiatus” period, it breaks my heart to point out to you, that it actually goes to the commentator immediately before you. This period ended at the time when QN posted his new entry. And by the way, I don’t mind at all if you drop a comment after mine!

  3. All in good humor, Badr. And thanks for advising me on how to get that avatar-thing.

  4. And a great summer it was. Except I keep losing in backgammon… :\
    Welcome back QN.

  5. I also pointed out to HP that all his “success stories” are of Lebanese who made it abroad.

    And your comment about the Lebanese woman’s behavior in the US vs. in Beirut on her summer vacation is right on the money.
