Am finally getting around to posting some old op-eds i wrote – here is one i wrote for the Boston Globe (http://www.boston.com/bostonglobe/) a while back about not this but the previous Italian election. Not that anything has really changed. sorry this is old, but i had vowed to make this a repository for all my writing. Had a great picture near it on the page….
