Having just been in Rome for a day (not building it-hahahahahhaa), I can say that the Italian people are very cheerful and friendly and nice. And geez, Rome is CHOCK full of nuns and preists (duh). But Italy is SCREWED. Everyone in officialdom is indifferent and rude, in that shrugging-Mediterranean-face kind of way.
People on the street-awesome.
But apparently-Mamma Mia!
Roma-We Have a Problem!
We have a problem!
Italians are now too proud to make their own damned pizza!
Wait: I HAVE AN IDEA. I CAN SAVE AMERICA.
Maybe America should export some Mexicans to Italy to do the jobs that Italians won't do?!?!?
