Want to read about Berlusconi?

Want to read about Berlusconi? I don't. I can't even remember when I reached the saturation point with this fellow. Must have been at least ten years ago.

But in case you do, the British weekly The Economist has an article out about him with the elegant title "The man who screwed an entire country." We Americans have a lot to learn from the Brits where tastefulness is concerned. Of course maybe they mean it quite literally, in reference to his romantic pursuits. He even kissed the hand of Colonel Gheddafi, who isn't even Italian. But I think that little tryst has come to an end.
