From Lebanon on LBC-TV. I have written before about this daily segment on LBC-TV (the station of the right-wing sectarian Christian militia, the Lebanese Forces) which celebrates famous Lebanese and alleged Lebanese like Elia Kazan. Yesterday, it was the "famous" hip hop singer Masari. Who? Masari. According to LBC-TV this Lebanese-Canadian singer is huge worldwide now. Last year--according to our kooky station--he won the award for "the best video clip" ever, and the following year he was selected as the "best pop singer" anywhere. This is the Lebanonese culture industry poising the minds of the Hummus generations.
