What’s up, Doc Fernández?

I expected the brand new administration to charge openly  against the journalists who supported “Cambiemos” from the very start.  No surprise at all. What blew my mind was our elected president’s ramming against Bugs Bunny! “Animated cartoons are a system of social control”, Alberto Fernández stated. This legendary rabbit is not the Seguir leyendo

Vox populi, Vox Dei

Ok. Now it’s their turn. I wonder if they’ll start their administration complaining about “la herencia recibida” – the received heritage (something Mauricio Macri should have stressed way back in 2015, but failed to do so). Fortunately for all of us, there will be some kind of balance. The winners Seguir leyendo

Una imagen vale más que mil palabras

Una imagen vale más que mil palabras. Debería ser algo natural, lógico y esperable, pero ver la foto de Mauricio Macri y Alberto Fernández estrechándose las manos en la Casa Rosada, como paso inicial de una transición orgánica, me parece un gesto de urbanidad y racionalidad poco habitual en un Seguir leyendo

All the best!

Honestly, I can’t wait. Whoever wins tomorrow, I do hope our representatives show tolerance and common sense, and choose to join efforts, regardless their parties and ideologies.  We haven’t touched bottom yet, but are pretty close. The time has come for our politicians to work together, putting aside their differences. We, Seguir leyendo

Gane quien gane…

Gane quien gane el domingo, como ciudadana, deseo fervientemente que quien sea “derrotado” en las elecciones colabore con quienes sean elegidos para gobernar durante los próximos cuatro años. No es prudente ni sensato hacer borrón y cuenta nueva. No hay por qué desaprovechar lo conseguido. No se trata de una Seguir leyendo

Debate or boring stand-up?

In my opinion, last Sunday’s Argentine presidential campaign`s first debate was a bore. For several reasons. On the one hand, it wasn’t a “debate” in the strict sense of the word. No interaction whatsoever. The speakers didn’t even look at one another. On the other hand, they sounded as if Seguir leyendo

Something smells rotten at Comodoro Py

These last few weeks, lots of Kirchnerite allied people allegedly involved in corruption and money laundering cases, are being released from jail. Fishy, isn’t it? What’s the rush, I wonder. Why now? All of a sudden, federal judges are hurrying to set them free. At the same time, some highly Seguir leyendo

Fed up by now…

Whatever the result of the October presidential elections is, whoever  wins, I do hope everything’s over as soon as possible, so that we can leave this sort of limbo, this endless period of waiting, this nowhere land we’re all living in, with candidates promising things and the government taking last minute, Seguir leyendo

The rest is silence…

I was literally struck by her short but powerful speech. Let me quote 16-year- old Greta Thunberg’s warning to world leaders (and to all of us), at the UN climate summit: “My message is: we’ll be watching you”. (the audience chuckled and clapped). “This is all wrong. I shouldn’t be Seguir leyendo

Basketball life lessons

Although Spain defeated Argentina in the Basketball World Cup, our squad’s performance was absolutely brilliant. There’s so much to learn from these players, their discipline, their commitment, their passion. We should listen to star Luis Scola’s advice and apply it to our everyday life. There’s no magic here, he says.  Simply Seguir leyendo
