Read This and Weep...for Italy
Bloggers have to register.
You have to be registered to blog.
What on earth for? Why should they have to "register"? If stinking corrupt politicians are pissed off at being ridiculed and exposed in blogs, and feel they have been defamed or something, they can always find out about the authors by getting the ISPs to cough up the addresses etc etc. There are ways.
It's enuff to trascinare alla disperazione, peoples. I think youse can understand.
What possible reason could there be for that? You need a bureacracy to keep track of the blogs, and who is to say what criteria are neeed to get on to the register?
This is classic Italian politics. The comrades are in charge, and they do not like it up 'em.
And the impact, well, I think we can agree she will be objectively bad.
UPDATE WITH SOBBING:
Christ on a stick, now the Mafia is the biggest business? mean, we all knew it was big, but the frickin' biggest?
UPDATE WITH SHOULDER SHRUG:
Well, what are you gonna do - just leave it in the ground? Italians are, at the DNA level, a lawless bunch. My cousin in Mestre drove me along in her crazy little car, running red lights and refusing to attach her seat belt, all the whle staring at me (which was disconcerting since we were motoring at speed) and lamenting .... how lawless Italians are!
I just had to hug her.
Still this guy was digging up 12000 pieces of stuff from the Veneto, in the B.C if you do not mind. Sheesh. Salute you, fella.
Do not get me wrong, I am still boiling with rage about the blogger thing, but hey.
