Chano, another victim.

Santiago Moreno Charpentier (Chano), musician, composer, singer and former leader of “Tan Biónica”, is hospitalized in serious condition after being shot by a policeman during an outbreak he suffered.  Thanks to this unfortunate event, we are all getting familiar with the flaws of our current Mental Health Law.

Vaccines pouring in

Something smells fishy.  All of a sudden, vaccination in La Plata has speeded up. All those who have been looking forward to the Sputnik second dose, are being summoned daily. I can’t help thinking that this might be a political strategy to please voters, as PASO primary elections draw near. A Seguir leyendo

Cuba is waking up

A few years ago, I went to Cuba on holiday. After enjoying an unforgettable week in Varadero, I visited La Habana. The contrast was huge, flagrant, unforgettable too, but for different reasons.

Such a frivolous and childish attitude is absolutely obscene in the Seguir leyendo

Vizotti

Este gobierno no sólo comunica poco, sino que comunica mal. Empezando por el Presidente, quien con esa tendencia a improvisar, a dejarse llevar por lo que se le va ocurriendo, diríase  a “estandapear”, mete la pata seguido y luego se ve obligado a retractarse, casi siempre oscureciendo más que aclarando. Ahora Seguir leyendo

CFK’s rentrée

That’s a laugh! CFK, in her theatrical reappearance in La Plata, has urged the “hostile”media and the opposition to leave “vaccines and pandemic out of political disputes’. She, of all people! The current administration (which she obviously leads) has made political use of vaccines and pandemic from the very start. Seguir leyendo
