Bill Clinton



Bill Clinton's words......

Former President Bill Clinton speaking in Cincinnati, Ohio, yesterday, said the Iranian government is at odds with the modern world.

“Basically, this is about a government trying to deny the modern world. Ultimately, they don’t think they can keep control if everyone can say what they want and do what they want and go where they want. And they’re right. We’re all going to have to get used to having less control if we want to live in win-win world instead of win-lose,” Clinton said.

Hippie,squatter,freeworld life-Christiania





A place to live like no other. If you are in any way hippie-esque in your thinking you might enjoy this. Christiania in Denmark is a huge commune in the city of Copenhagen. Here is a brief description-
Christiania, also known as Freetown Christiania (Danish: Fristaden Christiania) is self-proclaimed autonomous neighbourhood of about 850 residents, covering 34 hectares (85 acres) in the borough of Christianshavn in the Danish capital Copenhagen. From an official point of view, Christiania is rather regarded a large commune, but its relation to the authorities has a unique status in being regulated by a special law, the Christiania Law of 1989 which transfers parts of the supervision of the area from the municipality of Copenhagen to the state. To find out more about this place or this way of living go hereFor even more info on Christiania go here

A story about a white girl growing up with a white father who thinks he's black




The book called 'I'm Down' by Mishna Wolff sounds interesting- Mishna Wolff grew up in a poor black neighborhood with her single father, a white man who truly believed he was black. “He strutted around with a short perm, a Cosby-esqe sweater, gold chains and a Kangol—telling jokes like Redd Fox, and giving advice like Jesse Jackson. You couldn’t tell my father he was white. Believe me, I tried,” writes Wolff. And so from early childhood on, her father began his crusade to make his white daughter Down.

Unfortunately, Mishna didn’t quite fit in with the neighborhood kids: she couldn’t dance, she couldn’t sing, she couldn’t double dutch and she was the worst player on her all-black basketball team. She was shy, uncool and painfully white. And yet when she was suddenly sent to a rich white school, she found she was too “black” to fit in with her white classmates.

I’m Down is a hip, hysterical and at the same time beautiful memoir that will have you howling with laughter, recommending it to friends and questioning what it means to be black and white in America.

A book about love and food




A description-This little Italian girl from Brooklyn’s Bay Ridge surely did go through a lot of men in her search for Mr. Right. She also went through a lot of pasta. By day, Melucci worked as a publicist in a glamorous but poorly paid Manhattan job. One by one, she found boyfriends, fed them well, and established relationships. Thus, she recapitulates the hoary truth about the path to a man’s heart lying through his stomach. Hard as she tried, her relationships didn’t last, foundering over serious issues such as alcoholism or fear of commitment. It’s not for lack of her trying. She even took off work to create an Italian-influenced seder for a Jewish suitor. One reason for her constant disappointment lies in her affection for her late father, who gave her more love and support than she realized in her youth. Recipes included. --Mark Knoblauch
