As bad as it might be to find yourself in Houston today (92 degrees, 62% humidity and 40% chance of spending the weekend behind bars), it would be far worse to find yourself in Lebanon.

We’re told that Hind is pretty easy on the eyes, and speaks with a French-Lebanese accent that makes the knees of men melt.
When last heard from, Hind was campaigning for her brother in Lebanon's elections a few months ago. So is Hind okay? Is she in a bomb shelter in Beirut? Or was she vacationing in St. Tropez? Calls to the Lebanese consulate in New York went unanswered. Apparently they have more important things to do than answer our questions about their richest young woman.
