Not much news from around here, which is probably good. The Cataloony jerks who burned photographs of the King were sentenced to fines of nearly €3000 each. The city government retracted a report that said that the water supply 8% of Barcelona households that get their water exclusively from the Llobregat was chemically contaminated, and apologized for agitating people needlessly. The Great Transport Snafu still has everything all snarled up around here, though one of the four commuter lines that is shut down has resumed partial service. Some dopes announced that they are going to build a mini-Las Vegas in the Monegros desert along the Barcelona-Zaragoza road. I'll believe it when I see it. They arrested five members of the ETA youth brigade in Pamplona; they'd been torching ATMs and sabotaging train lines.
