I've Been Thinking:
Another popular public personality was assassinated in Beirut today.
Samir Kassir was a columnist for the newspaper An Nahar.
It was a cookie cutter assassination.
There have been 5 similar bombings in Christian areas of Beirut since March.
You need not be a Law & Order aficionado to put the pieces together.
The Syrians have the most to gain by his death.
