Salute Incident in Catalonian Parliament; Nazi vs Roman Style (Eugenio Battaglia, Italy, 10/31/14 2:03 am) With reference to Jordi Molins's post of 30 October, I hope he will forgive me if I make a small correction.

Living Wage (Henry Levin, USA, 10/30/14 9:08 am) Come on John. The $8.60 for a gallon of gasoline in Denmark is not due to a living wage, but to taxes (which are probably justifiable given the external costs of fossil fuel and driving). I am refer ... more
