There has been outrage in Italy after the outgoing government published every Italian's declared earnings and tax contributions on the internet.

They were trying to spot Mafia godfathers!

It is coming closer! Washington D.C.: The Homeless Capital.

*********************************

The good old days of the USSR return! The spy who came from the …Caspian Sea!!!

Hundreds of thousands of Cubans are attending a May Day parade in Havana honoring the world's workers. President Raul Castro, who succeeded his ailing brother Fidel in February, is attending the celebrations. He did not address the crowds.

Sorry to say but a May Day without a seven-hour speech from Fidel is just …not the same!

*********************************

Officials in Texas have found signs of injury among children removed from a polygamous sect and are checking for possible sexual abuse of boys.

What bruised knees or egos?

No more Anastasia legends and theories? Are they going to tell us that E.T. is not real also?

*********************************

Tehran has complained to the UN about remarks made last week by Hillary Clinton on the circumstances under which the US might attack Iran. The Democratic presidential hopeful said last week the US could "totally obliterate" Iran if it attacked Israel.

I really don’t get this, has George W. Bush or Barack Obama said anything different? It must be some kind of feminist issue!

*********************************

The trial of Iraq's former deputy Prime Minister Tariq Aziz over the deaths of a group of merchants in 1992 has opened in Baghdad.

Another lynching on the way?

*********************************

Zimbabwe's Electoral Commission has started to verify the results of the disputed presidential election, more than five weeks after the vote.

For others ‘go home’ might apply, in Mugabe’s case the magic phrase is: go to your cell!!!

*********************************

Sir Ian McKellen has confirmed he will reprise his role as Gandalf in the film version of JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit. "Yes, it's true," he told Empire magazine. "It's not a part that you turn down. I loved playing Gandalf."

There is no sarcastic comment here but the news is so exciting I could not avoid mentioning it!

*********************************

Veteran singer Tina Turner has revealed plans to tour the US, despite announcing her retirement from performing on the road eight years ago. The 68-year-old pop legend told TV host Oprah Winfrey the tour would kick off in October in Kansas City.

Here I will not try to be sarcastic but who’s next? The Egyptian mummies?

*********************************

Microsoft has yet to decide if it will up its $41.8bn (£21bn) bid for Yahoo, go hostile or walk away from the deal. A meeting of the Microsoft board on Wednesday ended without any decision, according to the Wall Street Journal.

And talking about mummies here is …Bill Gates!

*********************************

You might see a copycat Ovi magazine

Remember that whoever copycats Ovi magazine shows how limited and untalented some parasites can be! But the legal system prevails, even the Mexican one!
