Si usted siente que después de las elecciones pasadas son los pacientes los que dirigen el manicomio, créame, no es el único. El lunático número uno es, sin duda, el mismo presidente, quien la semana pasada en Miami demostró una vez más que su concepto (o su comprensión) de la realidad no pasa de los “reality shows”.

If you feel that after the last election the inmates are running the asylum, you are not alone. The main lunatic seems to be the president himself, who last week in Miami showed once again that his concept (or his grasp) of reality does not go beyond, well, very bad “reality shows.”

Live healthy-- but keep it quiet

Live healthy-- but keep it quiet
Spanish

Add this to the twin pitfalls of
religion and politics that lead the list of topics one should not bring
up in polite conversation: healthy living.

Good, clean, healthy living gets a
bad rap these days. Oh, not among the sort of people whose idea of fun
is drinking raw milk directly from old Millie's wizened udder during a
back-to-nature "hay-cation."

I mean among regular people. You
know, the sort who generally don't feel they have the time, energy,
money or need to work out or to make meals that require a lot of fresh
food.
