The Counting Game
There's an old joke that says democracy is four wolves and one lamb deciding what to have for lunch.
But, in truth, democracy is not majority rule. And I don't condone the counting game when it comes to public opinion.
What Monday meant to me was:
a) Rafik Hariri's murder will not be brushed under the carpet ...the truth must be known.
b) The opposition in Lebanon is not negligible ...it is a palpable force that must be respected.
c) Lebanese have never been more willing to forego their sectarian and provincial differences and come together under one flag ...may that last long after independence is regained.
