Leggendo l'Unita' sul lago Wobegon

Non so perche', ma l'ultima colonna di Garrison Keillor mi sembra ispirata alla vita politica di D'Alema:

"Back in those days I shopped at a spice store that carried 24 different kinds of oregano and I assembled an awesome collection of German knives. I got into arguments with other men over the comparative virginity of our respective olive oils [1]. I sneered at a man's salad once because his shaved parmigiano wasn't the right parmigiano and I happened to have some of that parmigiano on me and I showed him how to shave it thin and translucent as parmigiano should be shaved [2] and he shoved me away and we rolled around on the kitchen floor, punching and kicking and gouging each other. Now we're best friends [3]. Once I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die. He told me that my dressing needed more vinegar. He was wrong about that. Dead wrong [4].

And then one day it was all over. I threw a dinner party for 12 and made gazpacho and risotto and tacos and osso buco and a gateau of Jell-O with marshmallows and served it with a Barolo, and when the guests left, delirious with pleasure, I put my whisk away and never looked back[5]. It simply wasn't fun anymore. A man comes to a point in life when he decides that he doesn't have to make the best risotto in town. It's not important.[6]"

[1] gli anni del bambino togliattiano, della fgci e del pci: interminabili discussioni a chiave sull'interpretazione autentica dei classici del pensiero marxista
[2] il "te lo faccio vedere io come si fa" caratteristico dell'uomo
[3] Veltroni, o forse un'allusione al patto della crostata
[4] Achille Occhetto?
[5] Le regionali del 2000
[6] Vissani, Vespa, il passaggio a Bruxelles, la presidenza della repubblica..

(ho appena scoperto che la Library dell'Universita' del Minnesota e' stata abbonata all'Unita' per decenni)

Bohr: When the ships arrived on the wednesday, there were 8,000 jews in Denmark to be arrested and crammed into their holds. On the Friday evening, at the start of the Shabbat, when the SS began their round up, there was scarcely a jew to be found.
Margrethe: they'd all been hidden in churches and hospitals, in people's home and country cottages.
Bohr: But how was that possible? Because we'd been tipped off by someone in the German embassy. Your man?
Heisenberg: One of them
..
Bohr: Heisenberg, I have to say - if people are to be measured stricly in terms of observable quantities..
Heisenberg: Then we should need a strange new quantum ethics. There'd a place in Heaven for me.
