I see that Ramadan is starting today.
The first time I ever heard of it was when Sami El-Taji fasted when I was working for Fluor aeons ago.
One of nature's aristocrats and a gentleman as I recall.
He was also the first Palestinian I ever met. I was only vaguely aware of them as figures you used to see on the TV surrounded by rubble up to then, as opposed to flesh and blood human beings.
What a dimwit I was in my early twenties.
