Yesterday during the brief time in the evening when we did have power, I happened to watch the Albanian news- in Albanian- and caught an intriguing news item about the Prime Minister Sali Berisha and it made me furious. It seems that the PM was in the Vatican this week giving the "Order of Mother Teresa" award to the Vatican Radio for its service to the Balkan community, especially during the communist years. You know, I'd like a word with Mr. Berisha. Here in Albania, his people are once again living in communist-like conditions, and he leaves them all behind to go kiss the hand of the Pope and give an award. Oh and of course, his wife went along, and a small entourage. Mr. Berisha apparently returned home with a medal and his wife with a new rosary. Nice.
