Educational Materials Needed

During yet another delicious lunch today, I realized that for some strange reason copies of the 2004 United States Surgeon General's Report on Smoking have never reached Catania.

This, I am sure, was just another bureaucratic oversite by the Bush regime.

If any of you are finished reading your personal copy of the Report, please send it to me so that I can get them into the hands of the people here in Catania.

When asked about how the transition has been for his new American assistant coaching staff, head coach Davide Giuliano said, “I have all my assistants running five miles a day, but they eat 10 miles a day.”

The running part is SO not true.

George... great posts, but I haven't heard anything from you in 6 minutes. What's up?

Just getting caught up with the blog, and really enjoying it. The amazing thing to me is not how much Italians smoke -- I was prepared for that -- but that when someone actually posts a no-smoking sign (on trains, for example), that people actually obey it. Given the usual Italian disposition for disregarding authority, I'm wondering just how big the fines must be.

Well the best I can do right now is a link to the-old-standby "Reefer Madness". It's in the public domain and freely available for export...

Wow, what a find! It even has Italian subtitles. I hope it helps.
