FAUSTA HAS SPARED me the job of translating my post in Barcepundit (Spanish version) about Zapatero standing up Jeff Immelt, GE's CEO, because he was too tired after attending the pathetic local version of the Oscars ceremony for the Spanish movie industry, the Goya Awards.

It's not the first time he's done something like this: some weeks ago, he cancelled a trip to Poland only 4 and a half hours before the start, with everything ready and the mission deployed, because he was also too tired after his long testimony before the parliamentary commission investigating the March 11 bombings (albeit there was something more, as you'll read here; you'll have to scroll down a bit).
