News in from reporter in New York about James Gandolfini, who died of a heart attack in Rome last week, and all of a sudden we were told the world will never be the same again. Ever.
First, we had the media going bonkers about Gandolfini’s passing, presenting the whole thing as if we’ve lost not just an actor, who incidentally became famous for playing a New Jersey mobster, but some international statesman who made a great difference to the lives of millions and was a renowned intellectual and a role model.
Let’s face it, Nelson Mandela has not been well recently and he is the type of person who deserves VIP treatment because he is thankfully still alive and kicking. The US Secretary of State John Kerry however decides VIP access for a body to be resumed from another country. Gandolfini’s body has been retrieved and returned to America. Also in the news is the scoop from Mexico border to the the US as talks about clamping down on the corruption and under hand pay offs there as smugglers continue to bring in stuff like sombrero’s and illegal drugs.
