Selling independence (hopefully at a good price).

Happy Independence Sale proclaims City Mall in Dora (it's on November 22 in case you want to know). And if you do not get it, it comes with a Lebanese flag punctured as if it was a tag. I reminded me of those ebay announcements BNWT (Brand New With Tags) except in our case, there's nothing new about Lebanon which has been used and abused by civilizations for several millennia now. So apparently they sold the independence - I just hope they got a good price. This reminded me of someone who, in 2009, when the Aizone campaign "vote" was raging (vote for freedom, vote for governance, vote for tolerance), someone put on his shop... Vote 4 sale (hey, they were having a discount on the merchandise, but also they were trying to get the highest bidder to buy their ballot.
