Honest brokering is nice work -- if you can get it -
11 Aug 2006 | The Globe and Mail A.17 | by Clifford Orwin.

Doubtless, there are dishonest brokers, but it pays to be an honest one. It's only if parties see you as honest that they'll choose to deal through you. And you have no reason to favour either party: Wheat or rye, bauxite or bdellium, it's all the same to you. Broker a deal that makes the parties happy, pocket your percentage, and you'll be happy, too. One of them may be unhappy tomorrow, but that's his worry: Your commission is non-refundable.

Being Hassan Nasrallah -
JULY 18, 2006 | | By BRET STEPHENS. Nasrallah is the
secretary general of Hezb Allah, or Party of God, which holds 14 of
parliament's 128 seats, including a seat in the cabinet. He provoked the
2006 war with Israel....Hezbollah's political future. Here's a fact
about Lebanon that many people would rather forget: The birth rate among
Shiites averages between eight and nine per household. By contrast,
Sunni households produce about five children, while Christians and Druze
average two. Yet Lebanon's antiquated "confessional" political system,
based in part on a 1932 census, gives Christians half the seats in
parliament (as well as the presidency), while Shiites, who may already
be a majority, are allotted only 27 seats. Is this "democratic"?
Nasrallah thinks not. For years, his political strategy has been to
consolidate Hezbollah's position among Shiites and co-opt the
ever-weakening Christians in a common alliance against the Sunnis.
