Salvini has pulled out all the folksy stops to connect with voters in the region, centered around the city of Bologna, which beyond a reputation as the center of Italy’s red belt is also renowned for its food and hospitality. Salvini has sniffed a Parmesan cheese wheel, kissed a salami and hugged the statue of a fictional communist mayor, Peppone, the leftist foil to the town’s priest Don Camillo in beloved comic stories and films about the fraught political healing process in postwar Italy. … [Read more...] about Matteo Salvini seeks power in Rome through regional victory
Thank you very much! It felt wonderful. I want to say it felt “surreal,” but it felt very real. I wasn’t expecting it. Here’s what’s odd. You’re sitting there and you don’t expect it, but then it comes into your mind, “Wait, what if I do win? What do I say?” Then I caught myself like, “Wait, don’t coup de grâce it! If you’re preparing yourself to win an award you haven’t won, you’re not going to win it, so I thought I’d just ride this thing. I actually thought Redford or Chiwetel would win it, and then they said “Matt…,” and I had to go in my head like, “Chi-we-tel…,” “Ro-bert…,” I-dris…,” “Tom…,” and then I realized I got it. It felt really good, man. What we did, and I keep going back to this underdog tale that we told, we had so much to gain. I’m up there representing this guy’s story that … [Read more...] about Matthew McConaughey Discusses His Golden Globe Victory, ‘True Detective,’ and More
Wershe’s association with the Curry brothers enabled him to make connections in the drug underworld. One of those “connects” was a suburban man named Art Derrick who owned a small fleet of aircraft which enabled him to bring drugs from Miami to Detroit easily and quickly. Derrick was the weight man Wershe aspired to be. It was Derrick who gave Wershe the nickname White Boy Rick. In a sworn affidavit before he died from complications of drug abuse, Derrick said he had two customers named Rick. One was black, the other white. To avoid confusion between the two, Derrick says he called the black customer Maserati Rick for the car he drove and nicknamed Wershe White Boy Rick for his age and race. Narcs heard Derrick refer to White Boy Rick and the nickname soon found its way to a local TV news reporter working the police beat. When Wershe was eventually arrested headline writers fell in love with the nickname and used it often. … [Read more...] about Is Cocaine Legend White Boy Rick Serving Life for Busting Crooked Cops?
Then the self-doubt starts. She asks me, "Am I smart enough for these schools, Mom?" "Why?" I ask. She tells me that all her friends stress about the SAT score and remark about how her score isn't that high, so how did a girl like her get into a school like Georgia Tech. Random folks on social media ask her to share her SAT score and GPA. Is it because she is black? We wonder, and it eats at us. We don't want to be the affirmative action quota. EVERYTHING is about that damned test. Our lives hang in the balance on that score. And the values that I have worked so hard to instill in my children don't matter. What matters is that SAT score. And now to find out the level of cheating going on -- it really pisses me off. I had heard rumors before this, that parents were paying tens of thousands of dollars to cheat their way into a great SAT score. So I am not surprised, but I am still pissed. Why should your acceptance to a college depend on one test taken on one day of your 12-grade career … [Read more...] about We asked how the college cheating scam made you feel.
