Antonio García MartínezOh! A paroxysm of diaspora nostalgia.
Here's 'Os Pinos' sung by Lucía Pérez, accompanied by bagpipes. Galicians are historically Celtic, play bagpipes, often have red hair, etc.
Joao Doria, a candidate for the gubernatorial seat in Sao Paulo, Brazil, denies he is at the center of a viral orgy video with five women in a hotel in early October. The election is set for this Sunday
