CASABLANCA, Morocco - An explosion rocked a suburb of Casablanca early Wednesday, killing at least one person and injuring six, residents and government officials said.
Consider, simply for the sake of illustration, an anecdote about the label Casablanca back in the 1970s:
Perhaps, unlike Humphrey Bogart and Claude Rains in "Casablanca," the Obama White House and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce were never destined for a beautiful friendship.
The most famous usage of this defense was in Casablanca, where Senor Ferrari (Sidney Greenstreet) says to Laszlo, about the letters of credit: I observe that in one respect you are a very fortunate man, Monsieur.
Vic, the part that's most like that scene from Casablanca is your minimizing of Hannity's dissembling.
Casablanca is okay, but Estrellita across the street from it is nicer.
According to Vanessa Pellegrin, a journalist based in Casablanca and blogging on the collective blog Casawaves:
A few days ago, the “brand new” tunnel built in Casablanca under Roudani was inundated after one single night rain.
One could also add to this list two museums - one of Moroccan Judaism in Casablanca, and the Center for Jewish-Moroccan culture in Brussels.
I hope you enjoy your life in Casablanca Carolina.
