#nightwatch   -   Accattone (1961)   -  Written and Directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini . 
Vittorio (Franco Citti), nicknamed "Accattone" (meaning 'beggar' in Italian), leads a mostly serene life as a pimp until his prostitute, Maddalena, is hurt by his rivals and sent to prison. Finding himself without a steady income, and not much inclination for working himself, he discovers the naive Stella and tries to lure her into prostituting herself for him.

I have met two astronauts -  Sally Ride and Ronald McNair
I met Dr. Ride at a Harvard event and I met Dr.McNair many times at MIT while he was  post-doc there.  Both had doctorates in Physics.
Sally died of cancer. Ron died in the ill-fated shuttle mission which exploded on launch.

Let's hope this result creates momentum for improving women's rights in Ireland.

Ireland looks on-track to become the first country to legalize marriage for same-sex couples via a popular vote. Although full results are not in, all signs point to voters backing the referendum by a wide margin in the traditionally Catholic country. The only question now is how big that victory...

Like many Thai restaurants in Boston- nondescript copy cat food for the "round eye" palate. Chinatown is your best chance.

I just read an article in the Cambridge Chronicle that they have filed for bankruptcy. If you don't have a car to get out to Ikea, Home Depot, Target, etc. then you don't have much choice. I live closer to Pill Hardware only buy small items. I only go to "economy" when I can't find what I want at Pill or Radio Shack. Most times I land up at Home Depot since they don't stock anything exotic. Pill, at least, still has some old stuff. Dickson Bros. in "The Square' is better. If you need weird stuff try Fran-Dan or Met. Pipe near Kendall.
