So I found this letter (posted on another blog) from Ziad Rahbani (musicologist-musician, playwright, actor, social critic, bourgeois dropout, son of living muscial legend Fairuz) to Saad Hariri (spoiled billionaire brat, apologist for despotic monarchist rulers, pimp to despotic monarchist rulers, heir to mega-filthy billionaire neo-aristocrats, saudist-Lebanese dandy and party animal.)
The discourse back and forth that follows the letter (between bloggers and commentators) is also quite refreshing, inspired by Ziad's sharp, slicing wit.
The commentators attempt to follow Ziad's liberated spirit, sometimes straying from their usual, tired, bubble-gum-chewing political banter (of which I am just as guilty,) but they tend to never reach the level of liberation that Ziad possesses.
NOTE ADDED OCTOBER 26: CONTROVERSY HAS LOOMED ABOUT WHETHER ZIAD ACTUALLY WROTE THIS LETTER OR WHETHER IT WAS WRITTEN ANONYMOUSLY IN HIS STYLE. THE ORIGINAL POST ON "LEBANONHEARTBLOGS" THAT I ORIGINALLY LINKED TO FOR THE TEXT OF THE LETTER HAS SINCE BEEN DELETED AND IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE, SO NEITHER ARE THE COMMENTS THAT FOLLOWED IT. I HAVE TAKEN THE LIBERTY THEN TO POST A COPY OF THE TEXT OF THE LETTER HERE ON MY BLOG. CLICKING ON ZIAD'S PICTURE ABOVE WILL TAKE YOU TO MY POSTED COPY, NO LONGER TO THE BLOG WHERE I ORIGINALLY FOUND THE LETTER.
