HAVE YOU TAKEN YOUR MEDICINE TODAY?
Sharon Tate: unforgettable beauty!
“The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed.”
– Ernest Hemingway

DEMOCRACY IN THE EUROZONE
Having lived thru two independence referendums in Quebec, I looked upon Scotland’s attempt at independence with less alarm than many who reside in the EuroZone. Even my wife thought it was not such a good idea…BUT if you accept that you live in a democracy, then you MUST let the people themselves decide their own fate. That goes for Belgium, Spain, Germany…and even the Ukraine. Nothing stays the same forever…the EuroZone was a good idea a long time ago…it too must adapt or disappear.
NIGEL SHORT’S THOUGHTS ON THE REFFERENDUM
THE PARTY YOU WERE NEVER INVITED TO
“Never stop smiling not even when you’re sad, someone might fall in love with your smile.”
Gabriel García Márquez
MEANWHILE, BACK IN THE CITY…
Have you noticed how so internally focused texters can be when in public that they sometimes simply forget themselves?
FUCK THE PARTY!
Yesterday’s visit to the US by Poroshenko was just for photo-opportunities and handshakes. Despite the begging by the Ukraine president, he returns home empty handed. As it should be…there are many who understand that what has happened these past 6 months was just to test Russia to see how close they could get to its borders. When Russia absorbed the Crimea, Putin simultaneously put 750 megatons of fully armed nuclear weapons in the air , 24 hours a day. Russian long range bombers are all over Europe airspace thru the Atlantic. Putin’s message to Obama: don’t cross the red line. While Russia would never win a nuclear confrontation with the US (can there be a winner?), the truth is that neither NATO nor the US are prepared should Russia do a first-strike.
