Sergio Leone & Ennio Morricone the Italian Films Maestros – 10/19/2011

For Your Entertainment (FYE)

I found it peculiar that two (2) of Western Civilization cradles, Greece and Italy, are in financial and demographic trouble despite all the inspiration they provided us! Something must be wrong!  ;+)

I know I must be an incorrigible romantic optimist, but I do NOT believe in: “Everything passes, everything breaks, everything wears out. (tout passe, tout casse, tout lasse)”! That is usually a cynical disguise for the wounded incorrigible romantic optimist……….got to be a better way!  ;+)
