I thought that the death of Sandro early this year was big news, but this, indeed, does appear to be bigger news. I can't tell if the census has been suspended or not, but not a sign of it anywhere around here.

Meanwhile, http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSN2723309120101027

Wonder what a regular trading day would have brought.

Further meanwhile, I just changed the channel to CronicaTV, and instead of the usual music, it sounds like scenes from The Godfather.

I heard the news whilst out fishing.

All I heard was "Kirchner is dead".....for a few minutes I didn't know which one it was. I have an intense dislike for politics and most politicians. Even when I lived in the UK I showed little interest in the goings on in Westminster or what a politician had to say.....the majority are liars/actors/and not to be trusted.
Since coming to live here and seeing how politics is run my dislike for it has intensified even more.

Always sad to see someone pass away especially before their time but c'est la vie.
