I was jealous. Today I read that NYC has 52 public swimming pools. There is not a single one in Beirut. In fact, Rafiq Hariri--who only deserves scorn and contempt for the harm that he has done to the people of Lebanon, Syria and Palestine (he also was involved in shady deals with Iyad `Allawi in Iraq) was planning to privatize the entire coast in Lebanon, and he succeeded in privatizing most of the beaches in Beirut.
