Yes, we know the world is falling apart. We know the European banking system is going down the drain, maybe taking the US banking system with it. And, yes, we know that our ally, Pakistan, gives safe haven to our enemy, al Qaeda. We know Iran is working night and day to develop a nuclear weapon, we know Bashar al-Assad is slaughtering his own people and we know that around 12,000 died in Mexican drug violence last year.
And, with tears, we acknowledge that here in the United States, where there doesn’t seem to be enough money to go around, billions of dollars are going to be spent on a presidential campaign that – no matter it’s importance – is going to crush us with boredom.
That’s why we’ve turned to something completely different, namely this video. We like “Total Eclipse of the Heart” by Bonnie Tyler and we also like Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. And it’s our good fortune that we like the way funny Isabel Fay has put them together. So we’re posting Isabel’s video, a comically updated Romeo and Juliet set to Bonnie Tyler’s desperate song. You can say we’re simply avoiding all the bad news, hoping it will go away a leave us alone. And you’re right.
