It’s not that I haven’t been annoyed enough by events in the Middle East these past couple weeks. But now it turns out that, as if it all wasn’t bad enough to begin with, someone I really like (regardless of never having met him) is stuck in the middle of it.
“we are currently shooting an episode of NR in Lebanon–and it should be video gold. Those kookie-krazy kids from Hezbollah were popping off their weapons today(shooting in the air, I gather)–and Israel has been bombing and mobilizing a division in the South with reported land and sea strikes… (See today’s news–and quotes from Israeli PM). While the party continues in Beirut–there’s a lot of concern that the Israelis will follow up with strikes on infrastructure (like the power grid). And we were due to head to the Bekka Valley tomorrow. BTW..this town is Party Central!”
Keep your head down, Tony…
