Italians tired of Berlusconi: Black goats must be caught early, before it gets dark.

More and more, Italians are fed up with their controversial prime minister Berlusconi. Tens of thousands of people have rallied in Rome, demanding his resignation after a series of scandals, from tax fraud and bribery to sex.

Mr. Berlusconi is a pure product of Italian society, a society where bribery, mafiosi, and politicians are all tangled in the same bag. It is impossible to separate them. Berlusconi has been a subject of controversy from his wealth to his elevation as prime minister. The Italian people have witnessed it, known it, and let it happen.

It’s too late to complain. He should have been stopped earlier. As the Yoruba of Nigeria say, “Black goats must be caught early, before it gets dark.”
