A great lesson on how a great country works, and it is not by chance it's a superpower: former presidents Clinton and Bush, despite their bitter rivality, are pictured today with current president Obama, united for Haiti. Thank you America!

Some more great music with Mary J Blige and the U2

previous video had defective audio, I've substituted it with this one. Hope it works better

Si svuotino gli arsenali, si riempiano i granai !

Dear Rebecca, please allow me to post in your blog in order to pay homage to one of the greatest persons we've had in Italian history, who passed away twenty years ago on 24 February 1990, aged 93, after having served as the most popular ever, by far, President of the Republic of Italy.

Alessandro (simply "Sandro") Pertini comes from Liguria, the same region as Orietta's and Manuela's on the sea, nearby Genoa. He fought in World War II against nazi-fascism. He was sentenced to death but escaped. In 1978 he was elected President of the Republic of Italy, the seventh after the Constitution of the Republic which he himself contributed to write after World War II.

No other Italian President has never ever matched his popularity (although the current one Mr Giorgio Napolitano is a very good and decent person). We Italians were united in loving him, especially when he said something important about AFRICA, one of his most known sentences:


which I can roughly translate into: Let's fuck up weapons and rather care about filling the granaries

He meant to feed needy people rather than make war. Unfortunately, his extraordinary message of wisdom has fallen on deaf ears... But in the spirit of his message we'll keep on fighting for justice

Thank you!!

Hello Friends,
