I don’t know what’s the deal with kids selling flowers in Kaslik, but I spotted one of them sitting at Starbucks and texting on her phone all the time, while another one refused a nicely wrapped cookie that I had just bought from Starbucks. I don’t know what’s up with these kids, and what they’re doing on the street but I am not giving them anything anymore.
The 37th Rally of Lebanon kicks off tonight with the Total Super Stage at the Beirut Water Front starting 6:30 pm. It would be nice to see someone other than Roger Feghali win the rally this year. You can check out the full program [Here].
Make sure to follow me on Instagram as I will be posting pictures and videos from tonight’s super stage.
We all want Muslims and Christians to love and respect each other in this country but the last thing we need are armed gunmen protecting religious shrines in the name of unity. We don’t need Muslims protecting Christians and vice versa, we need LEBANESE and only LEBANESE to protect their country regardless of their religion.
128 tomatoes were sent this year to the 128 representatives of the people, with a sticker reading “No to extension”, and a demonstration is planned tomorrow starting from the Ministry of Interior in Sanayeh till Riad al Solh square to reject the extension of the Parliament. This is the second extension to the current members’ mandate after last year’s extension in November.
Needless to say, I am totally against any extension and I believe whomever is blocking presidential elections or any elections for that sake in Lebanon is committing a huge mistake.
They should give them the M3 as a wedding gift.

As far as I know, the gas prices dropped today.
I really find it shameful that there are still Lebanese who throw their garbage on the streets and litter everywhere they go, and I partially blame the municipalities and authorities for that. I’ve been walking and jogging in Jounieh and ATCL for the past month or so, and the streets are not clean at all, not even in Jounieh’s souks. There’s garbage here and there, and there’s dog poop all over the ATCL sidewalk. I’ve seen numerous times people walking their dogs at ATCL and stopping in the middle of the sidewalk to let them take a crap and just go on with their walk as if nothing happened. It’s disgusting and gross but there’s nothing we can do about it if the municipality is not serious enough to implement the law and penalize those who litter.
Just take a look at this warning issued above and how it was hung randomly on an electric pole by the municipality. It says “final warning” but I doubt that anyone will take the municipality seriously if they don’t make a small effort and do it properly. For all I know, what they’re doing is called littering as well as the paper won’t last long on the pole or will be torn down by kids playing around.

A Lebanese called Elias Kfouri was killed today during a failed shop robbery in the Jal el-Dib area. I found these pictures which are apparently from the crime scene and they’re just wrong.
Who the hell seals a crime scene with fruit crates? Don’t they have crime scene tapes? Anything better than crates?
Here’s a [link] to the full story behind Elie’s murder.
