Napolitano was certainly the best all around choice. The opposition missed an occasion to appear responsible. In all of this B is the big loser.
On another note there are very important developments in the Abu Omar kidnapping case. A carabinieri, ROS Marshall Luciano Pironi, has confessed to having been an off-hours CIA irregular who participated in the actual kidnapping. His confession unveils probable collusion of the Italian government and the Sismi in the case- something both have always denied. The scoop will be published tomorrow, Friday, in the Espresso weekly.
It´s fitting that the care-taker Berlusconi government in its last throws can only release official notes of denial that aren´t worth the water they´re written on.
I've decided to sip some wine tonight ("why not" I thought, this must be the 3rd time I get myself a bottle in say 4 months, bar this weekend's party, so it's not like I'm an alcoholic) ...
... my commenting is therefore going to become excellent after a few glasses, consider yourselves warned.
slurp slurp aaah
I think I need some distraction... (/understatement)

I can't believe that people say alcohol is a mild social lubricant.
I can't believe that people say alcohol makes people smarter.
Do you have any younger brothers and sisters and if you do, do you get all excited about life developments concerning them?
Uhm, ok... Clean up after thyself is all I ask. More than that I don't want to know.
Look, I'm all for women and men sharing a drink, a bed, a pet, and even some things best left unmentioned here, but once you close that bathroom door behind you, the rest is your business and yours alone! I mean, who the hell are you trying to impress in there?! And where did your get such an odd idea?
Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities. -Voltaire
Anyway, I got a bit pie-eyed, and then went to my brother-in-laws restaurant which has a knees-up on Thursday nights. (Our Lyon expert knows the place well)
Than I went for a train about 01.50 out into the night (full moon). I'll just catch some zeees I thought as I made myself comfortable on the train. Classic mistake. I went 5 stops over (some 20 Kms) and landed in the god-forsaken siding of Nuppulinna on a fortunately warm night. As the taxi driver said "Don't do this in winter".
Anyway. I'm awake now---
You can't be me, I'm taken
