STRANGE DAYS...

Strange days under the sun of Ostia: they had a very bad fight and the matter was “your skirt is too short!” “No, it's not!”…
Strange days in Italy as well: Prodi's fragile coalition collapsed after the Udeur Party (1,4% of Parliament!) withdrew support Monday night, wiping out the government's one-vote majority in the Senate.
Strange days in Davos: bleak forecasts for the global economy dominated Wednesday's opening of the annual World Economic Forum, but business and government leaders were divided over the possibility of a global recession.
Strange days in Middle East: Israel said it expects Egypt to “solve the problem” after at least 50,000 people crossed the downed Gaza-Egyptian border to buy supplies.
Strange days, silly fights, arrogant behaviors, hopeless scenaries.
Anything else?
Oh, I almost forgot: a 15-year-old (!!!) detained near the Afghan border has “confessed” to joining a team of assassins sent to kill Benazir Bhutto…
Strange days…

      The world will not get better, but if each of us is trying to get better, maybe it help a bit. Oh ya, I think the skirt is ok. Nice blog.

      fantastic post with so much to think about...

      some strange things happen even closer to you and me, with our neighbors... and they don't make the news unless someone registers them... like you did with the wonderful photo above!
