Apparently some folks in Beirut couldn't get themselves completely jazzed about the global outpouring of sympathy for Parisians following the ISIS-Daesh attacks there on Friday. 'What about us?' these Beirutis asked. 'Are we chopped liver? Don't we have eyes, hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions? Aren't we fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer, as the Parisians are?'
