Alex Zanardi, a supreme athlete who triumphed over adversity

In a telling and often moving chat a few years ago with American talk-show host David Letterman, Alex Zanardi discussed his then upcoming challenge—an Ironman Competition. Asked whether he feared the prospect of possible sharks lurking in the water during the swimming section, the endearingly self-deprecating and always forward-looking sports great replied that the shark would most probably look up and swim away, deciding that he was not worth the trouble.

The "Art" of doing business

I was recently asked to do the courtesy of driving an elderly Italian-born gentleman to an appointment some 13 kilometers from where he lives. It was meant to be an easy task: we were to merely drop off one item and pick another, he navigated while I drove, and the round trip should not have taken much more than a half hour, even in heavy traffic. Alas, the whole trip took a lot longer than anticipated. (Photo Wide Shut Photography)
