Uncle Guido's Facts

This blog features posts on Politics and Culture and focuses on social trends and political philosophy.  Among other issues, I have written on fashion, gender, marketing, political correctness, educational reform, and invasion of privacy.  I write extensively on literature, especially the work of Shakespeare, Tennessee Williams, and Chekhov; and  relate the themes of the plays and short stories to modern life. I am an amateur cook, and have posted a number of recipes based on my many years cooking and eating in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Europe. Based on my four decades of foreign travel,  I have posted many stories, anecdotes, observations, and opinions on travel, customs, and culture. I would appreciate any comments you might have.
