    LMAO :D
    This is a must read: today S&P confirmed rating A+ for Italy and stable outlook, and estimated that the debt/GDP ratio will rise at 109%. An italian government member ironically commented:"We'll do everything to avert it"
    (Link only in italian, sorry)

    and he added IN LATIN "De mortuis nihil nisi bonum" = "Say nothing but good about the dead"

    Rating agencies don't even deserve a serious answer from an undersecretary... I'm really laughing my a$$ off :D
