The Blog is on vacation.
It’s been a busy season, this.
So much has happened in the world.
My greatest hope is that my stories had more moved you to wonder what is the truth behind the media news.
However, I would happily content knowing that I made you smile.
Thank you very much for being here.

Berlusconi is Caesar, here the evidence

Stories and News No. 216

I read that today newspapers tell once again something which puts dark veils on Silvio Berlusconi’s name.
Some of these media reveal that police associates the pseudonym Caesar, present in the wiretapping on the new P3 secret lodge, to our Prime Minister.
Moreover, if Berlusconi is involved, who would he have been if not Caesar?
Come on.
If Silvio is implicated, who else could be behind this Caesar, mentioned as the leader?
Moreover, I also have evidence that Berlusconi is Caesar!

The Story:

Berlusconi is Caesar.
In De Bello Gallico Caesar wrote: "Men willingly believe what they want to be true."
Come on, it’s him!
One million jobs, lower taxes for all, safest cities… it’s him without a doubt.
"The enemy would have victory if they had who knows how to win," Caesar said, according to Plutarch, in the biography dedicated to the dictator.
Now, tell me if this enemy does not fit with the Italian Democratic Party!
Caesar Berlusconi has understood from the beginning and he used it since fifteen years.
In my humble opinion, his enemies still have not found who knows how to win…
The following Caesar’s statement is extraordinary actual: "I love treason but hate the traitor."
The traitor…
Who is him?
This reminds me of that joke where there is Jesus who says: "Some of you will betray me..."
Judas with innocent tone replays: "Will I do?"
And Jesus responds kidding him: "Will I do? Will I do?!"
Anyways, listening live and especially all I assure it’s funny.
But now here’s what Marcus Tullius Cicero wrote about Caesar: "He had earned the ignorant multitude with gifts, buildings, donations of food and banquets. He bought his allies with prizes, the opponents with demonstrations of clemency, in fact he had given to a city, which had been freely, the custom to serve, partly due to fear, partly due to resignation…"
If I had not said that he was Caesar, who would you have thought if not him?
"He terribly endured the defect of baldness for which he was often mocked and insulted," Gaio Svetonio Tranquillo said about Caesar. "He was used to pull down from the top of the balding head…"
I mean, these are evidence.
Caesar or Berlusconi, he is the same person.
Now, Cleopatra left him.
All that remains is who will be Brutus…

Vatican Radio tumors

Stories and News No. 215

"The study suggests that there was an important, consistent and significant association between exposure to residential structures of Vatican Radio and excess disease risk for leukemia and lymphoma in children."
This statement comes from expert opinion requested by the judge for preliminary investigations Zaira Secchi, about the deaths caused by electromagnetic pollution from 1990 to 2003 in the north of Rome, following the subsequent investigation.
The General Director of the Catholic radio station, Federico Lombardi, comments:
"Vatican Radio learned with surprise news about the report prepared by the Rome judge about the incident evidence in the proceedings for alleged damage to public health...
Vatican Radio will present its views as soon as possible and counterclaims of its own experts Professor Umberto Veronesi and Dr. Susanna Lagorio.
It’s good to remember that according to international literature in the field it was never proven the existence of a causal relationship such as that suggested..."
But yes, it must be so.
The truth of the Lord will be restored soon.
The name of the Divine Radio will definitely returned to its original purity and its soul will be cleansed from all sin.
Only the tumors will remain...

The Story:

We are the Vatican Radio.
We are the voice of the Pope and the Church in dialogue with the world.
We are here to broadcast the Holy See, legally based in the Vatican City State. It is a mean of communication and evangelization created to serve the Pope’s Ministry.
Our main task is to proclaim the Christian message freely, faithfully and efficiently and keeping the centre of Catholicism in contact with the different countries of the world.
How?
Simple: diffusing the voice and the teachings of the Roman Pontiff, informing about the activities of the Holy See, giving information about the life and the activities of the Catholic Church in the world and helping the faithful to evaluate today’s problems in the light of the Teachings of the Church.
We give advice and cooperation to Dioceses or Bishops’ Conferences in the field of radio broadcasting sector.
We have also the institutional task to record, amplify, and distribute the sound of all the official Vatican activities of the Holy Father and to exercise and protect, in an exclusive way, the copyright and intellectual property rights over the voice recordings of the Roman Pontiffs.
Some of you might ask: what that has to do with Jesus Christ?
Moreover, what that has to do with his life?
We will reply when we broadcast.
Leave your phone number.
Brothers and sisters, we are here now for other reasons.
Some careless people accuse us of causing cancer, especially in children, for over ten years.
That’s obviously false and we will respond in the appropriate forums.
Meanwhile, we soundly sleep.
No doubt haunts us.
Our conscience is clear.
Why? You know, that’s because we are the voice of God.
Otherwise, who are we?!

PDL is falling down and PD alternative is: too many immigrants in Italy

Stories and News No. 214

I think that recent days Berlusconi’s People of Freedom image has become shabby and shameful to the most strong of his supporters too.
He will never admit it in public and in the style of his loved leader he will point out all the usual plot of the communist judiciary.
However, I am convinced that within himself, perhaps in the evening when he’ll put the light off before going to sleep, will have a very clear perception of what kind of people he voted.
This morning I read about ten thousand pages of documents on a true lodge, a secret business committee created for rule the State, a sort of P3.
Through these investigations, after the name of the usual Denis Verdini, we have the other habitué Marcello Dell'Utri and the Economy Undersecretary Nicholas Cosentino.
While the news that Berlusconi has asked foreign ambassadors he met to bring beautiful girls in Italy makes the usual tour of the world, this is my question: if the PDL is literally falling down, what does Democratic Party?

The Story:

Once upon a time there was a country we can call Italy.
I could also say Spain; do not think I’m obsessed.
Indeed, I’d really prefer to speak about Spain, I would tell you about the Soccer Championship just won.
But try to understand me: I talk about what I care most.
In the country called Italy there was a government.
Maybe, you could say that is obvious, it’s normal that there is a government.
You are wrong.
I can assure you that there are countries where there is no government and politicians ever do what the fuck they want.
Speaking about the country named Italy its government had reached the game over.
Of course, a metaphor for metaphor, saying that the government had come with the shit up to his neck would be more fitting; however, you know how things work in the governments: at most they arrive to game over.
In deep shit there is always the country, never the government.
If you are familiar with the governments of countries, when one of them is game over, usually the adverse coalition rubs its hands and raises its voice, ready to take over the position of rivals.
Well, at the time of fatal impasse in the government, this was one of the ringing signals and especially alternative messages sent by the minority opposition:

In Italy there are too many immigrants

(Video by senator and Marche regional secretary Democratic Party Palmiro Ucchielli)

As if to say, the problem of government is not in the recipe. To win we just need to replace the chef.
To add a chair we’re always in time…

Berlusconi Mandela comparison

Stories and News No. 213

According to many newspapers, the most exciting moment of the ceremony that preceded yesterday's final of the soccer World Cup was the short tour of the court by Nelson Mandela.
Once the small electric car appeared around the whole stadium jumped.
Only five minutes.
Five minutes to greet and smile to the thousands and billions people connected.
No speech, no need to send messages or illuminating and touching speeches.
That's a privilege of those men whose history speaks for them, getting an ocean of respect and admiration from everybody.
A hand, a smile and the standing ovation is total.
The truth is that people would stand up in front of men like Mandela without them too.
I’m talking about men that world history, among other things, defines as leaders.
It’s said that every country has the government it deserves.
Well, similarly, every People (of freedom) have got their leader.
And the vice versa is also true…

The Story:

This man has been twenty-seven years in prison to defend his ideas…


This one is ready to sell them at any price to not go even a minute at a trial…


This man in 1993 was awarded with the Nobel Peace Prize and that was the most undisputed award in the human history…


This one was designated as possible candidate by some of his disciples and that was the most undisputed bullshit in the human history…


This man, the day of his unjust conviction, claimed of being ready to die in the name of his people…


This one, every day of his life, would be ready to let die an entire people in the name of his freedom...


This man needs just a smile to get his people's attention…


This one must necessarily say some shit, or none listens to him…


This man, when he will be no more here, will be remembered as a legend by his people…


This one, when he will be no more here, will be denied a second later by his people.


They deny him right now…

Italian Media Strike against Berlusconi gag law chance for questioning itself

Stories and News No. 212

Today is a special day for Italian journalists.
The National Italian Press Federation announced for July 9 2010 a silent strike to protest against Berlusconi Government wiretapping bill.
Here's how the federation press release starts: “The Italian journalists are called to a unique form of protest that is expressed in a "noisy" silence information on Friday 9 July, against the rules of wiretapping bill that severely limited the right of citizens to learn how the judicial investigations proceed, inflicting major disruption on the free circuit of the news.”
The initiative has received massive adhesion, almost complete.
I will not enter the diatribe on strike and no strike.
Besides, if I say no, even if also with Marco Travaglio, I risk of being in agreement with Berlusconi Newspaper’s director Feltri, and I get hives just to think about it.
Anyway, I'm not a journalist.
I write and tell stories.
Yet, there was a time when I had the desire to be a reporter…

The Story:

Today I offer you a true story.
I’m talking about a completely true story.
Many years ago, when my hair was black, I wrote for a little local newspaper.
Well, our director was able to get a small sponsorship from La Repubblica.
For them it was a trifle, but for a self mad magazine meant a lot, as well as to boast of so great support.
Our publication worked thanks to contributions from pizza and bar, try to understand me.
Watching next to the names of a butcher and a grocer that one of a national newspaper warmed our hearts.
The first issue with the prestigious banner arrived in the important redaction and the journalist in contact with our director came to see us.
We were all excited to deal with a professional of A series.
The man was nice and offered many compliments on some articles, including mine.
For this reason, flushed from the recognition, I hopefully asked: "How can I write for La Repubblica?"
He hesitated for a moment and then replied: "Do you know anyone important?"
More or less spontaneous laughs followed.
I did not laugh.
Even today, I think there is nothing to laugh at.
Now I want to speak to that journalist, who obviously will never read this article.
Do you remember me?
I wonder if you still work for La Repubblica, the same newspaper that is a promoter of the strike.
Strikes are important for a myriad of reasons.
One of these is that, extraordinarily coming out from the routine of daily work, you have the valuable opportunity to reflect on your work.
Even and especially what goes beyond the reasons of the strike itself.
For example, the meaning of what you do.
As mentioned in the preface, I did not become a journalist.
It happened for many reasons, but certainly one of them is that I never tried to find recommendation of someone to get something.
What about you?
You know, this is what I thought then and I have not asked.
For this reason I didn’t laugh at your response.
So I ask you now: what about you?
I assume yes, otherwise why did you say that joke?
You already know what I’m speaking about, right?
Press freedom must be defended every day, my friend.
Otherwise it is in danger every day.

L’Aquila earthquake victims protest and the lies of Berlusconi Newspaper

Stories and News No. 211

Yesterday in Rome we had yet another demonstration of what kind of country we have become.
The Committee 3e32, L'Aquila coordination network, had organized a manifestation in July 7, 2010, to bring to the streets the following demands: We first ask for the suspension of all taxes and charges, the freezing of loans and a series measures to support employment and the economy.
I also read on the site of the promoters that there was great participation, by local and national organizations.
Associations, political parties, committees, companies, municipalities and institutions like the University of L'Aquila and the Archbishopric.
Like most of you know, the procession was stopped by the police.
Consequently we saw another clash between officers and protesters, with three persons wounded.
The news was obviously on the front pages of all media.
As always, every newspaper tends to give a personal version of the facts.
The absolute objectivity does not exist, we all agree.
But there is a limit beyond which that personal becomes personal a lie…

The Story:

Once upon a time there was the editor of a newspaper.
Let’s imagine that he’s the director of a biased newspaper.
Anyways, this is bullshit.
All newspapers are biased.
So, let’s figure that our protagonist is the director of one of them.
Let us also that the newspaper belongs to the family of Prime Minister.
Add that, like all of the newspapers, it takes money from the State - which means the citizens – to live.
Now, let’s imagine that a large group of people, let’s say about five thousand, went the streets to protest against the government led by Prime Minister, whose family owns this newspaper, going behind one of the residences of the Premier.
Think that during the event there some avoidable accidents happen and three people are wounded.
Now, dream to be in the place of that newspaper’s editor.
He cannot ignore the news, indeed, he should not.
How can he tell it?
In one way, he has no alternative.

First, he must blame the accident to one of the main leaders of the manifestation:
The mayor of Pd uses 5 thousand people from Abruzzo as human shields and sends them to clash with the police. That was an irresponsible attitude that not even the noblest of causes could justify.

Second, he have to show that the demonstrators had already been satisfied:
L’Aquila Taxes: delay of 10 years. Recovery of not paid taxes by L’Aquila citizens for the suspension ordered by the earthquake will be carried out in 120 monthly installments from January 2011. This was announced by the Secretary to the Prime Minister Gianni Letta.

Third, he must divide the demonstrators, emphasizing those who think the opposite way:
Who is left in Abruzzo supports Silvio: "Rebuilding blocked by the City Mayor."
A woman: "Who was in a tent now has a home. These protests are instrumental and misguided." A regional adviser: "Restoration stopped because the mayor Cialente has not yet signed the plans."

It’s really true that in Italy there is no freedom of the press

Berlusconi PDL was created to amalgamate center right: here is the recipe

Stories and News No. 210

"The People of Freedom was created to amalgamate all the political traditions of the center right…"
Words by Silvio Berlusconi, in the footnote to the meeting he had yesterday with the faithful forzaitalians.
Now, putting aside the critics to the prime minister’s work, we must admit that this amalgam was not a simple transaction.
Sure, to make an amalgam of the traditions in the center left is much more difficult.
It's like trying to put together the chicken with cherry jam, Prodi and Veltroni are well aware.
Moreover, someone might point out to them: but why the fuck you insist with cherry jam? Satisfy yourself with the chicken! Oops… are you those of the jam?
Here is the problem: it’s not clear who's the chicken and who the jam.
That would mean that amalgam works.
Instead, while all seems to be all right, the Mastella sauce or the Bertinotti oil come out and everything goes to hell.
In contrast, the right side of the table holds about fifteen years, despite the Fini beans, called the Finiani, are tired to be the side dish.
They can scream how they want: if in the menu you’re a side dish, so you remain until the dinner ends.
Anyway, we must say that Berlusconi had a strong idea, a winning recipe, able to unite right, center and especially Lega Nord in a single dish.
What’s this idea?

The Story:

In a disturbing and possible future:

We are in a school as many of the Italian Empire.
Yes, Italy is no longer a democratic republic but an empire with an almighty sovereign.
It’s needless to say who he is.
He defeated cancer and then death, and even hemorrhoids.
The population accustomed to the change without too much difficulty.
As if nothing had changed …
I was saying that the scene takes place in a school as many and never before this as many was suitable.
In fact, all schools are equal and when I say all I mean all in the universal sense.
There are no more those useless classifications in elementary, junior and senior, first degree and second degree, public and private universities, long, short and circumcised courses.
Everything has been cut.
Now there is a unique school.
In this school there is only one teacher, indeed, the Master.
He is an essential figure in the formation of the students.
He is a sort of amalgam - a magic word in this story - of identities.
To put it simply, the Master is an omniscient teacher priest with absolute sexual freedom with students and not.
Maybe that’s the reason why the parents accompany children to school with considerable reluctance.
One day, the daughter of one of the few sinister psychotic nostalgic patient, raises her hand during the lesson.
The Master is somewhat surprised.
Normally he cannot be interrupted.
He talks and students learn, that’s how the school works.
Incredibly, the arrogant young girl asks a question.
The questions in the school are feared as a pimple on the nose of a supermodel before leading an important fashion show.
The question is this: "Master, how did the father of the nation, Emperor Silvio, an amalgam of the traditions in the center-right?"
The professor is launching an anathema to the rebel student, however, he hesitates.
Answering that question may be an occasion to reaffirm the greatness of the sovereign.
Postponing a few minutes the punishment of subversive girl, he so replies: "Before I give you a just punishment for your insolence, I tell you that your question is wrong."
"In what way?" she replies before the whole careful class.
"You see, the divine emperor never thought of doing an amalgam of traditions. Traditions can not mix. "
"The ideologies?"
"No."
"The principles?"
"No."
"So, what did he amalgamate to form the PDL?"
"The ass and the chairs."
A general oh rises in the classroom.
"What is that face?" the Master says. "The People of Freedom was born and went on with this motto: an ass, a chair. Otherwise, how you could unite in the same party secessionists and fascists?"
At that moment he hears a loud and angry voice by the microphones: "The Master is wanted by the Principal."
What a poor man.
He forgot that in that time the correct answers are feared more than the wrong questions…

Money rain on the highway and the crisis is over

Stories and News No. 209

Yesterday afternoon a cash truck rolled over on A14 motorway between Foggia and Cerignola.
Two million euros in coins came out.
But this is not the news.
That's what seems happened after.
Apparently, all motorists get hands down to the money.
I read that at least ten thousand euros disappeared.
Let’s figure that the lucky - because, being honest, many of us consider this event as a gift of destiny... – persons was thirty, or better still fifty, just to say a lot.
Well, everybody caught on average 200 euros.
It’s a theft, I agree, but in times of crisis, everything is relative.
An incident like this and a family as many in Italy, perhaps one of the 30% who is forced to economize on food, put free 200 euros in his pocket.
Maybe they will bring children one more day to the sea.
I think Italy needs more of these incidents…

The Story:

Everything happened within a day.
It was the 6th of July 2010.
Someone called it the Italian miracle.
I am talking about an extraordinary event, an exceptional, unique and unrepeatable chain of events that in a few hours gave joy and not only to millions of people.
Life is unfair, you know, but sometimes it goes on vacation or to the toilet to do its business, as you prefer, the fact is that in those moments things can go differently.
I was there.
I mean, I was not everywhere, because we I’m speaking about multiple events, but one of these I witnessed with my own eyes.
But I will tell you of this in the end.
The newspapers have told you of lucky motorists near Foggia who encountered two million euros.
That was only the prelude.
The real party came the next day, from north to south.
In the province of Milan, at the time of entry to one of the many factories that surround the city of job, the workers who were preparing to begin the grind daily saw falling on their heads a thunderous rain of hundred euro banknotes, falling down from a sudden hole in the hold of a private plane.
I am referring to one of the many private planes that pass overhead normally sharing much worse rain on the poor people.
Not even an hour later, in a square in Rome, a crowd of unemployed citizens publicly express their unacceptable condition heard an unusual noise.
An explosion, you might think, the usual bomb that always damages the protesters rather than protested.
No bomb, this time.
Life is unfair but, as I said, that day it was paused.
The noise that the so-called troublemakers heard was produced by the simultaneous going out of money from all ATMs in the square.
The mad holes vomited all their richness and it was no longer theirs.
Perhaps it had never been.
But the most amazing event we had in Sicily.
Here there was a really bang.
Indeed, calling it a bang is highly restrictive.
It was a huge roar.
And within seconds the entire island turned its eyes towards Etna.
The volcano erupted, but no lava got out.
The lava doesn’t have that shiny dark yellow color.
That was gold, gold molten, hot gold molten.
In short, an endless sea of people arrived at the volcano and heedless of the earth shocks and the heat drew in that wonderful river.
Soon the news spread all over Italy and caravans of cars, buses and every kind of transport arrive to drink in the miraculous source of wealth.
Northern and Southerner people, all citizens who did not manage to get to the end of the month landed in Sicily to enjoy the gifts of the volcano.
What about the Sicilians?
They showed immense generosity and shared the gold with everybody.
Life is unfair and I know that these days only happen once in a… life, just when it is distracted.
Or when people find the courage to unite and drive it out to finally bring some justice.
Well, this is where I personally was.

Berlusconi, the old pig and the lap dancer

Stories and News No. 208

In these days we may read that, during his visit to Brazil, Silvio Berlusconi has found time to spend with six lap dancers.
According to the Daily Mail, Alexandra Valença has reported of having received £900 – about 1000 euros - to dance for our premier.
Here is the interview with dancer.
At the same time, recent ISTAT reports on employment are alarming: almost a young person in three is without a job, layoffs increased by 71% in the last six months and employments reduced by almost one percentage point over the same period of last year.
Berlusconi fans, I’m talking to you.
It can’t be true, right?
Certainly this Alexandra and the other girls invented all to get some fame, isn’t it?
Those are the usual aspersions on your beloved Prime Minister, yes?
Moreover, even if true, most of you will say: What's wrong? He likes women, so what? Better than gay! (this last one I really heard...).
Yeah, what's wrong?

The Story:

Once upon a time there was a seasoned 74 years old man.
Yes, because a 74 years old man is old, there's not much to say.
The old man put together about thousand euros from his and his sick wife’s pension to go and see a lap dancer, leaving the woman without medication.
So they called him the old pig.
No… Someone could feel compassion.
He’s an old man… okay, his wife is ill, but he has now arrived too.
What do you to pretend by an old man?
No, the message doesn’t come clear.
The message is important in this story.
Once upon a time there was a face lifted seasoned 74 years old man.
I said that being 74 years old, even if you lift your face lift you will always be an old man?
I think so, maybe I’ll cut this on editing.
I said the 74 years old man had his wife and their child sick.
Nevertheless, he sold the house for a thousand euros to a businessman named Anemone to pay for a night with two lap dancers.
Hence the nickname old pig.
No, even this cannot go.
The Italian males would fail to be completely angry with him: he is a reckless irresponsible guy who gave up behind a beautiful body. He should be understood.
He wouldn’t accept the old pig definition.
Let’s try this:
Once upon a time there was a face lifted seasoned and always smiling 74 years old man.
Why the fuck are you laughing? Life is over anyway!
No, I’ll cut this too, it's too bad.
Or maybe not, then I see.
The 74 years old man had a grandmother, a wife and four children, all six ill.
However, he sold them to the slaves market for an evening with six lap dancers.
So the story becomes murky. I’m imaging a movie too.
Returning home, he became known as the old pig.
No…
Rereading the whole, it seems just an excuse to call the protagonist old pig.
The fact is that I'd have a better story:
Once upon a time there was a seasoned 74 years old Prime Minister.
It’s now useless to explain why a 74 years old man is old, isn’t it?
The seasoned 74 years old Prime Minister was head of a country where at least one young person in three was unemployed.
A day happened day that a lap dancer said had received about 1000 euros from the old man to perform in front of him while he was travelling in Brazil.
If that were true, given the situation of the country, calling the prime minister old pig would be the least thing.
Yet, in the country there were people who preferred to have an old pig premier, everything but not gay.
He could be even mafia, corrupt, dishonest and liar, but never homosexual.
So the opposition finally found the scoop to bring down the government: the Prime Minister is gay!

In Finland broadband is legal right. That’s why not in Italy

Stories and News No. 207

Since yesterday, July 1, Finland is the first country in the world to make the broadband internet connection a legal right for all people.
"We considered the role of the internet in Finns everyday life," Communications Minister Suvi Linden said. "Internet services are no longer just for entertainment."
Yeah, it’s not just for entertainment.
In my humble opinion, it never did.
If you think that ARPANET, the precursor of internet, was born as defense project and counterintelligence service of the U.S. government, you may see how much it’s not just for fun.
Anyway high-speed Internet for all is a very important decision for a nation.
It means guaranteeing all citizens a fundamental tool of free information and especially sharing of the latter.
That’s the sign of a healthy democracy.
Why in Italy is it not possible?

The Story:

Once upon a time there was a country that we can call Italy.
Indeed, it is Italy.
This time I don’t want to play, because I perfectly know that Internet is not just entertainment.
And because press freedom is not only to allow newspapers to receive funding from the government, parties and banks, and then take to the streets to demonstrate against the gag law (legge bavaglio).
Press freedom is above all that every citizen of that country called Italy, that is, all Italians, have the right to found a newspaper and share information even without the help of the government, parties and banks.
The truth is that the country called Italy, that is Italy, is not a real country.
It is not a true nation.
It once was the national soccer team’s nation, but after Lippi, it’s not even that.
Italy is a theatre show.
It’s a film.
Or it’s a soap opera.
No, it’s a reality show.
What matters is being there.
What matters is having a part, a recognized by viewers role.
The story, is always the same, at least since forty years, more or less the age of this blog’s writer.
The story of the clichés that everybody knows and everybody slams: the government is all a magna magna (‘eat eat’ in roman dialect), the politicians are corrupt and go with whores, priests in Rome have both villas and palaces, merchants don’t pay taxes, USA command in Italy, and so on.
That’s the story of philistine platitudes worthy of the useless citizen.
However, to be part of the theatre show, film, soap opera, reality show, you need a character that follows the script.
Do the bad ones make no liberty and ad personam laws, take bribes, receive gift villas from very generous priests, do business with banks and shady characters?
Well, the good ones are those that live show their outrage, protest tore their clothes in front of the TV cameras, offering their brave face to the national channels or newspapers.
Unless they are also caught promoting no liberty and ad personam laws, taking bribes, receiving gift villas from very generous priests and doing business with banks and shady characters.
If not between them there are heroes, myths of civil society, without blemish and fear champions.
Courageous writers, actors, journalists, all engaged in fighting evil.
And where do they fight evil?
They do on national networks, books by national publishers and newspapers with minimum national visibility.
No matter who and how give the money.
What matters is being there.
Otherwise, how do the fuck all, without exception, may buy villa with garden, beach house, plasma TV and super car?!
That's why in Italy there is no legal right to broadband for all.
Because otherwise, so many characters, heroes and stars, good or bad, should look for a real job...
