L’odore della parmigiana alle otto di mattina..
Un magistrato di sinistra, che in tempi non sospetti faceva notare come l’agire speciale per cazzate tipo Ruby contro ”l’attenzionato speciale” Berlusconi, era fare un danno al Paese.
Questo signore è stato prepensionato dal Consiglio Supremo della Rivoluzione altrimenti detto Csm, con due anni di anticipo rispetto alla scadenza.
Cadono ovviamente in piedi quelli della Casta: non si creano precedenti, ma in ogni caso il messaggio è sempre quello, non disturbare i manovratori.
Nashville is Truly a (Vintage) Guitar Town
Since Nashville is home to thousands of songwriters and guitar players, it makes sense that Music City would also be the location of some well-known vintage guitar dealers. And while not all of us can afford a collectible vintage Gibson or Martin or other historic model, they sure are fun to try out in the showrooms and talk about with other pickers in Guitar Town.
Gruhn Guitars, opened in 1970 by George Gruhn, and Carter’s Vintage Guitars, owned by Walter and Christie Carter, are the stores of Nashville’s best-known vintage guitar dealers. While Gruhn doesn‘t boast about his clientele, he doesn’t need to. Stringed instruments from his shop, both acoustic and electric, have been used by literally hundreds of legends of guitardom over the past 44 years. Names like Clapton, Paisley, Knopfler, Gill, Gibbons and others come up in any conversation about who’s playing a guitar that Gruhn has touched at one time or another. In the end, though, the question has to be asked: Does a guitar always sound that much better just because it’s old?

Nadine Gordimer, a Nobel Prize-winning author famed for her portrayals of South Africa under apartheid, died Sunday, her family said in a statement. She was 90.
Gordimer was considered a modern literary genius, an important chronicler of the injustices of racial segregation. Three of her books were banned during apartheid.
"They showed how people were living here," Gordimer said in an NPR interview last year. “They showed what influences were shaping our lives. And they showed the many different reactions to it among different people here.”
