“Megxit”

“Megxit” seems to  be the soap opera of the century. The nickname -coined by the British press- describes Prince Harry’s and his wife’s plans to quit their royal duties and step back from their senior roles in the British Royal family.I guess Harry’s mother, the late and greatly missed Ladi Seguir leyendo

Nisman’s ghost

“I doubt Nisman committed suicide, but there’s no proof of murder”, Alberto Fernández  has recently stated. Almost five years have gone by and we still don’t know what really happened.  It’s a pity the prosecutor’s ghost doesn´t turn up, like Hamlet’s father, to reveal the naked truth and ask for Seguir leyendo

An angry Pope

“Love makes us patient. So many times we lose patience, even me, and I apologize for yesterday’s bad example,” the Pope said, after slapping a woman’s hand the day before. He added: “Women are sources of life. Yet they are continually insulted, beaten, raped, forced to prostitute themselves and to Seguir leyendo

On the threshold of 2020

2020 already! Unbelievable! I was born in 1951 and always thought of the year 2000 as a Bradburyan science fiction fantasy. But here I am, still alive and kicking. I’ve been lucky enough to have witnessed countless revolutions in all fields. I can’t help feeling, however, that in many aspects Seguir leyendo

Let’s wait and see…

I didn`t vote for him. Most people did. So now, Alberto Fernández is our President. I listened to his first speech and I must say I liked it. I’m not talking about the promises he has made. Macri also promised some miracles he wasn’t able to fulfill (the end of Seguir leyendo

Sépanlo

Si una vicepresidenta electa increpa a un tribunal de la manera en que lo hizo Cristina Fernández de Kirchner en Comodoro Py el lunes pasado, negándose a contestar preguntas, autoabsolviéndose y cuestionando severamente a los tres jueces, que la miraban atónitamente, ¿cómo podemos pretender, por ejemplo, que los alumnos respeten Seguir leyendo

CFK reloaded

I naïvely thought she would turn up in a different mood, softer, calmer, more rational, less aggressive, but the elected Vice President sounded and looked angrier than ever when she appeared in court last Monday.  Attack is the best form of defence, they say. That seems to her motto. She rounded Seguir leyendo

Ella, reloaded

Nuevamente pequé de ingenuidad. Creí que ella iba a volver más calmada, menos confrontativa, menos agresiva, menos belicosa. Pensé que su silencio de casi 4 años se correspondía con un período de reflexión, de meditación, de autocrítica, de introspección. Imaginé que abandonaría ese tono irascible, esa tendencia a “retar” a Seguir leyendo

Alperovich & Co.

Obviously, Senator José Alperovich denies all charges of sexual abuse against him and asks for “time to repair his honour”. He was given a leave of absence, but still keeps his parliamentary privileges.  I distinctly remember when his wife, Beatriz Rojkés, told the flooded tucumanos in April 2015 “I could very Seguir leyendo
