We have made common cause with Americans. Some will call it conceit, but we both have every reason to be proud. We have the oldest civilization in the world, they have the oldest democracy. These vacuum cleaners are designed and built to last for many years, even decades. These are not disposable vacuums. These vacuums are ones you would maintain and service to ensure you get your money s worth.
I agree with the one reader who said to do whatever it takes to bring Raimi, Maguire, and Dunst back! These films were just released and are still relevant. Why are we getting a reboot already!?

Let take it on the chin. I own this disaster. I apologise to all those wonderful Labour MPs who lost their seats who worked so hard . The single room of Nada Lisse’s apartment reeks of spoiled cabbage and unwashed flesh. There is no money to buy soap, and the pot of old vegetables has to last until the next day’s lunch.”It was on that couch in the corner that Emina froze to death last winter,” the old woman says of her neighbor’s sister, who had sought refuge from worse cold one story above. “We thought she was sick, but when we got her to the hospital the doctors told us she was dead.”The aching poverty afflicting Lisse contrasts brutally with the bounty on display at public markets throughout the city and with the hopeful outlook younger Sarajevans have developed as signs of normal life have returned.
