Photo of the Day

This March 4, 2013 photo shows comic-turned-politician Beppe Grillo, at center with sunglasses, being surrounded by media as he leaves a hotel after a meeting with the elected members of his Movimento 5 Stelle movement, in Rome. These are crazy days in Rome - where limbo reigns in parliament and papacy. Italy is usually a pretty anarchic place, with people bucking rules on everything from crossing the street to paying taxes. But the anarchy’s going a bit far: Who's running the country? Who's running the church? Nobody really knows. We Romans are living truly surreal times when a bearded comedian whose surname means "cricket" is now one of the nation's most powerful leaders, and aging cardinals from around the world are mobbed by paparazzi as if they were Hollywood starlets.
