The municipal government of Madrid has beefed up its fleet of night buses in an attempt to attract night-outers: the midnight Cinderellas and their Princes Charming as it were, as well as workers on the night shift. Fondly called “buhos” (night owls), these sustainable, eco-friendly, and cost- effective buses ply their routes from 23:30 to 6:00 AM. All aboard now!

Maine joined Colorado in barring Trump from the Primary Ballot in March. Other states are lined up to follow suit. But the former US president still leads in all the polls. . . Joe Biden’s immigration policies have become so unpopular that most question his bid for the Presidency in 2024. Wars are raging under his leadership. . . Still and all, we hope that the people will be able to choose their leader without interference and that wars in the world will cease.

Eurostat numbers on hand, it is but logical to conclude that while the ability of women in the EU to choose the age at which they would be mothers is GOOD news, it is at once a mixed blessing. Apparently, women have chosen not only to put motherhood on hold but also to have an insufficient number of children when they finally decide to have them.

In so doing, Europe is unable to keep its population constant unless boosted by immigrants.

"Robert Barnete is probably the best-known foreign painter of Spain today.   More than a painter, he is an interpreter of the color and vitality of Spanish lore.   His principal themes flamenco and bulls come alive on canvas. Recently, in the offices of the Ministry of Information and Tourism, in a ceremony presided by the Minister himself, the American painter was honored.  His public acclaim results from his graceful, action-filled expressions of Spanish life.
