(-, POST-GAZETTE, SEPTEMBER 11, 2015 Page9 ........... + .......... ,.. = ...... 11 Life imitating art! After the Mafia staged an elaborate funeral for a well-known mob boss in Rome, replete with 500 mourners, rose petals dropped from a helicopter, and the theme from The Godfather, "Rome cannot be defaced by those who want it to become the set of The Godfather," one official complained. Huh? Facing a need for $743 million worth of repairs to crumbling infrastructure, the mayor of Jackson, Miss., has told residents the city can fix its many potholes through the power of prayer. "Yes, I believe we can "pray potholes away," said Mayor Tony Yarber, who is also a church pastor. "Moses prayed," he said, "and a sea opened." GOP presidential candidate Donald Tromp resumed his war with Fox News host Megyn Kelly,. saying her show was better when she was on vacation and tweeting an attack that she was "a bimbo." Fox News Chief Roger Aries called Trump's comments *crude and irre- sponsible" and demanded he apologize. All 7. I billion Earthlings. After NASA officials announced that there is "not one shred of evidence" to support internet-fueled rumors that a massive asteroid will strike the. Earth this September. "The killer asteroid doesn't exist," the space agency said. Well, we are still in the month of September. Let us hope the space agency is right. Moron! A Colorado man was arrested for allegedly trying to catch a flight he missed by bursting through a locked door, chasing the closed plane, and demanding to be let in as it was being towed to the runway. Gee. a 12-year-old Taiwanese boy on a museum tour tripped and put his fist through a 350-year-old masterpiece by Italian artist Paolo Porpora worth $1.5 million. Reminder, the first day of autumn is on September 23rd. So get your wardrobe ready for the coming cool season.

When the Polk County Sheriffs Office said on its Facebook page that Logan Hale, 21, was wanted for a break-in, Hale wrote: "HELIX) Lhere I am." Days later, Hale was spot- ted in a car and arrested. The sheriffs office then updated its Facebook status: "Logan Hale, you are on your way to jail. Your at- tempts to hide were of no avail. Epic fail." ,Wow! July was officially the hottest month since records began in 1880, with Earth's average surface temperature hitting 61.86 degrees Fahrenheit. July's average tempera- ture was 1.46 degrees higher than the aver- age for the twentieth century, and 0.14 de- grees above the previous hottest month, which occurred in 1998. Mama M/a/ More than 1 in 4 new mothers go back to work within two weeks of giving birth, according to a newly published study. Most of these new moms work for employers who do not provide paid maternity leave. Proprio Stronzo claims all mothers are physically handicapped. They have only two hands. A typical mother, seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly an- nounces she never did care for pie. Remember, a modern mother is one who worries only when her daughter gets home from a date at a decent hour. Each year there are 105 baby boys born for every 100 baby girls. According to a Media General Association Press poll, ff parents could choose the sex of their babies, 27% would have a boy. 16% a girl. and 57% would have no preference. According to the Facts on ~ Dictionary of F rst Names, the most common names given to babies were: Michael, Matthew, Christo- Man#! You Eat!) Benvenutf! Our next region, Sardegna is the third largest region in Italy and is considered an island paradise by both tourists and the locals. Due to its strategically valuable posi- tion, this ancienLterritory has been the conquest of Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Arabs, Spaniards and Austrians over the centuries. In fact, Sardinian dialect, dialetto sardo, is a Latin-based language that very much reflects this multi-cul- tural historic heritage. A wide variety of other dialects are also spoken in Sardegna and, depending on where you are on the island, the influence of Spain, Liguria, Tuscany or Corsica's languages can be clearly heard, trmkltu3 each dialect very unique and fascinating. Sardegna is blessed with a generous amount of inland as well as sea products. The island is home to one third of Italy's sheep and livestock farming, which is considered the main source of income for 1,6 million inhabitants. Sardinian shep- herds are known for their exceptional cheese-making skills and the town of Macomer, located between the cities of Oristano and Sassari, is known for its wide variety of cheeses -- Pecorino sardo being at the top of the list. Another very old shepherd tradition that has passed from one generation to the next is the roasting of porchetto -- suckling pig -- smoked and roasted on a pit over aromatic herbs and fragrant wood fire. Porchetto is a juicy and crispy delight best enjoyed with a glass of local Cannonau wine. Sardinians are also known for the/r very unique bread called pane carasau or carta da musica (music paper). These thin, almost transparent, rounds of bread resemble sheets of music manuscript paper, especially when they are broken into pieces making the characteristic sound from which the name origi- nates. In Sardinian cooking, after the bread comes pasta: fregula, fllindeu, culingionis are some traditional types. But the most representative pasta is the malloreddus, commonly known as gnocchetti sardi (little Sardinian gnoc~hO. Made with durum wheat and saffron, these tiny pieces of dough are rolled lightly by thumb over a sieve or a grooved board so that the ridged surface will best carry the condiment. Enjoy eating malloreddus with tomato sauce, lamb ragout, seafood or sim- ply with butter and a generous amount of grated pecorino sardo.
