And now for a change of pace:
My Blog Talk Radio guest John Chappel, another Friend I Haven’t Met Yet, of Inside Europe: Iberian Notes has been posting on Spanish singer/media celebrity Isabel Pantoja, who’s been for decades a tabloid favorite from back in the days when her bullfighter husband got killed on the job.
The Spanish media has been portraying her life as a long-winding soap opera, and they aren’t about to stop now that things got interesting.
Tawdry reporting on tawdry characters is not exclusive to the US or the UK, and this story involves a singer, undeclared earnings, a real estate developer, and yet more bullfighting. The only missing ingredients are a couple of Democrats and the story would make it to Fox News.
I’ll be posting later today on the French election. We are blessed with another beautiful day, so until then, enjoy the day.
