Michael Young: Music Critic

Zeid in a mike young column…. i cant believe it came to this…. Young just could not resist delving into art criticism with this insight (my favorite word in Young is always the same: ONLY):

The remarkable promptness of our security agencies in detecting this year-old violence directed against the presidential office was only marginally less peculiar than Hamdan’s oddly respectful use of the word “general” in addressing our head of state. Genuine insolence would have dictated ignoring rank altogether and dangling Sleiman by his last name. But indeed nothing is more odious to Lebanese presidents than a request to go home. Even when constitutionally obligated to abide by that command, most prefer to linger.
