Sorry for the long silence. Pressing on with chapter five of the manuscript and also nothing much to comment on in the last days.
By the way: Mario Draghi beat Grisú hands down in terms of popularity and recognition. Only a very small demographic of people born in the 1970s in Germany and Italy seems to know Grisú at all. This is a shame because re-watching some Grisú episodes alerted me to the progressive political subtext that was completely lost on me when I watched it as a kid. German readers can read this for a more detailed discussion of Griú's politics.
