Meanwhile in Manama

The world press has focused lately on the problems in Bahrain and the continuing protests—albeit at a low level—which disrupt daily life. Seeing burning tires on the street or smelling tear gas are no longer unusual experiences. Nevertheless, the local press is concerned with more urgent matters. A recent letter to the editor published in the Gulf Daily News (November 27, 2012) complained about beauty salon malpractice. A customer had false eyelashes applied at a beauty shop in the Adliya neighborhood. There were two types on offer—the cheaper type would only last for one month, while the more expensive version was supposed to last for three. After purchasing the more expensive version, the customer complained that after only three weeks the salon’s “shoddy work made me look like a drag queen after a hard night’s partying.”

Never mind the political situation, this is much more serious.
