"So bitter is Tyre's 70-year-old mayor over the war that he even refused aid from the U.S. Embassy this week. "From the U.S. government, I will not take," he said after a U.S. official called to offer help. "Even if they came all the way down from Beirut, I would not take it."" (In the print edition of the SF Chronicle (but not in the internet edition), the headline of the story is :"Bitterness grows in Lebanonese resort city". I swear. I thought a reader is playing a joke at the newspaper).
