Hi everyone, just wanted to say I’m sorry for some of the unanswered emails. I’ve had lots of stuff going on (all of them good thank God!) and so little time left. Among other things, my second son is having his 1st birthday and is getting baptized next week, in the same cathedral we got married.
I’ll do my best to answer the emails sooner or later, just please, be patient, know that I’m just a bit overwhelmed and don’t doubt about sending questions again if you notice I missed them.
One thing though: Sometimes people ask about thinks that have already been covered recently , try using the Topics and “Search This Blog” engine. Both are on the left column scrolling down a bit, below the adds.
Also, I didn’t post about this before but its important news at least for Argentines: The K Media Law was approved last week.
I’ve mentioned this before hoping it wouldn’t pass but well, it did.
The K Media Law gives total power to the president regarding licenses for media to operate, printed news, TV and Radio, they determine what content is legal or not, they take away companies from media groups … supposedly to avoid monopolies… and give them to their own buddies to spread officinal propaganda.
Keeping it simple, we legally lost freedom of speech in Argentina last week.
I think we have a year until this law is fully enforced but we already lost that battle, and if we want our freedom of speech back we’ll have to do something about it. As of today, again, according to the law, the president decides what we read, watch on TV and listen to on the radio.
Sucks? Oh yes it does. And you know what? No one did anything about it. I didn’t do anything about it either, just sat and watched it happen like a plane crash, or worse.
