Way to Go… Isabella Rossellini?!

Italian actress Isabella Rossellini has written a blistering letter to the editor of the New York Times defending a piece by Italian writer Oriana Fallaci which severely criticized anti-US sentiment in Italy. (I’ve been unable to locate a translation of that piece – any help would be appreciated.) The NY Times editorial that caused Rossellini’s response can be found here. (The Times links require a free registration – it’s worth taking a moment to register.)

I’d like to thank Isabella Rossellini for her stand on the side of Italian-American relations and her defense of her fellow countrywoman. It’s truly nice to know that there are those voices in Europe who have not yet succombed to the intellectual mailaise and moral quagmire which appears to be darkening the European continent like a moral and intellectual Black Death.
