Tantric politics, therapeutic proparoxytones and Christmas spirit

The government is still recent, but it is already different. In eight months, there were eight changes in the government team. The last one had as its starting point the dismissal of two secretaries of state. Both disavowed the Minister of Economy, who supervised them. It happened two months ago, but only this week did the prime minister fire them. What was the rush? António Costa does tantric politics. Meanwhile, problems in hospital emergencies are multiplying, but with the change of minister, the assessment of the situation has changed. Marta Temido considered that the problem is “structural”; the new minister, Manuel Pizarro, speaks, in turn, of “chronic and systemic” problems. The difference seems minimal, but a subtle analyst will realize what is at stake. As the terms “chronic” and “systemic” are proparoxytone words, and the designation “proparoxytone” being as odd as the name of any antibiotic, the therapy to be adopted is found. Confused? Forget it, it’s Christmas. And the festive season lighting is now urban art. At least in municipalities where there are mayors who are true artists.
