BOSTON POST-GAZETTE, APRIL 18, 2014 Page. 15 L'Anno Bello (Continued from Page 4) Easter is a wonderful holi- day of rebirth, renewal and joy. It inspires us to make fresh starts in ourselves, searching for ways that we too may shed past insecuri- ties and habits and arise resplendent like the spring sun. The traditions that characterize Easter in Italy, from processions to explod- ing carts, chocolate eggs and ricotta pies, serve to pro- mote the spiritual renewal of the holiday and the joy of the blossoming spring. This Easter, no matter what cus- toms you follow, I hope that the optimism and delight of the holiday-linger with you wherever you go. Happy Easter! Buona Pasqua! Ally Di Censo Symynkywicz is a Graduate Student in History at the University of Massachusetts Boston. She appreciates any comments and suggestions about Italian holidays and folklore at adicenso89@gmail, com. News Briefs (Continued from Page i) own mousetrap. The NY Post called Sharpton "REV RAT." in a page one headline. Couldn't happen to a better guy,huh? According to the more liberal Smokin'Gun website, At Sharpton was a confiden- tim informant for the FBI back in the '80s against the Mob. The website reported that Sharpton was caught up in a FBI sting and apparently flipped to save his own skin. Sharpton now says he went to the FBI, they didn't come to him. He added, in his own mind, he wasn't a rat but. rather a cat trying to catch the rats. However, the FBI did refer to him in docu- ments as "CI-7" as in rat or snitch. This guy never had cred- ibility with me, nor with mil- lions out there who are now having a great laugh while Rev. Rat continues to spin out of control. Poor baby. What's MSNBC going to do over this rat-like host of theirs. GOTCHA AL, GOTCHA as you so often tell others on your show.

REMEMBERED ON Aaron finished with 755 HR ANNIVERSARY home runs, a mark topped by Barry Bonds' 762 mark, but steroids have soiled that HR record and may always do so. That season, NBC travelled with the team and started breaking into regular pro- gramming every time he came to bat. I still clearly remember when he swung at the ball and knew in- stantly it was out of the park, I will always hold a special I remembered April'40 place for Babe Ruth and years ago. Baseball fans his baseball achievements were awaiting Hank Aaron including his 715 mark, but breaking Babe Ruth's life- I also will remember Hank time home run record. Many fans back then were upset over Aaron surpassing the Babe. Many said he had way too ma_ny at-bats to be better than Ruth. Others clearly were upset that Aaron was African American. Aaron is now 80 years old, but I will always remember him as "Hammerin" Hank Aaron. He was signed by the Boston Braves but the team moved to Milwaukee by the time he made it up into the Majors. For me, he, Willie Mays and Mickey Mantle were the top three sluggers in my baseball book growing up. The Braves this year will wear an Aaron 40th anniver- sary patch on their uniform sleeves. I remember 1974. He tied Ruth's mark with his first swing of the sea- son off Jack Billingham in Cincinnati: Four days later, April 8, 1974 at home, he hit number 715 off AI Downing Aaron, too. He holds the record for most RBIs at 2,297 of them. He also struck out less than 100 times in every single season of his long career. BOB QUINN DAY AT FENWAY The Boston Red Sox paid tribute to former State Rep. and Attorney General Robert H.

The news over that selfie taken by Dave Ortiz with President Obama during a recent White House visit by the world champion 2013 Bos- ton Red Sox is old news, but I need to make one brief com- ment. When Ortiz took out his camera, did he do it spontaneously or not? He de- nies the selfie was taken for the purpose of promoting Samsung, but the company later admitted it talked with Ortiz before the visit. Is Ortiz free and clear of any charge of self-promotion for his lat- est employer? What is your verdict? ST. JUDE AND ST.
