Ah, poor Silvio!

From the December 18th edition of The Economist. As usual, poor Silvio never gets enough respect…

Ridi pagliacci!

From the November 6th, 2010 edition of The Economist and the “high” esteem it has for our “Great Leader”, Silvio Berlusconi!

Interesting the conclusion to the article, “A comedy that has gone on too long”:

“At the end of Leoncavallo’s opera, “Pagliacci”, Canio the clown steps forward, after stabbing Silvio, to tell the audience “La commedia e’ finita”. The curtain should now fall on the tragicomic reign of today’s Silvio, too”.

Indeed how true!
