When I look at scenes of the Lebanese parliament, I remember my childhood. My brothers and I used to play in that hall as kids, and we used to sit on the balcony and watch parliamentary sessions (my father was an employee in the parliament). I remember I was once passing by the accountant of the parliament (he later became a member of parliament in 1972 on the list of Kamil Al-As`ad) as a child: and he invited me in and opened the safe: and stuffed my pockets with coins. From the treasury itself!!! I left learning about Lebanese state accounting what I knew not before.
