The results of the Syrian elections are hours away. I don't know about you, but I am getting more anxious by the minute. This is probably the closest election that I have observed in my lifetime. I wonder how the candidates (or candidate) is holding up. Did you hear the story about a Syrian citizen who went to the Syrian embassy in Yemen and declared his intention to register his candidacy for the presidency? Upon hearing his request, a Syrian diplomat beat him up. Is that a true story? Somebody said it on an Arab satellite station, I am told.
