I finally realized today that I could change the language of my News. Google. I fooled around with Serbian for a while than switched to Italian. The big media are almost as upset as the big media here in the States, but there are great differences. For example. After reading about the usual problems, I came across a magazine article on how isolation helped great artists like Shakespeare and Frida Kalho.
The Corriere della Sera's advice was to listen to a duet from Clemenza di Tito. As Smokey Robinson might say under these circumstances: "I second that emotion."
Watch this space for more comforting nonsense.
