The Rienzi our Mississippi town was named after:

1313 - 1354
Roman Revolutionary

Cola di Rienzi made himself popular Tribune of Rome (1347)
after a revolt of a republican movement which unsuccessfully
tried to restore Roman greatness at a time of the city's decadence.
The Roman nobles rose against Rienzi, the Pope denounced him a
criminal and heretic and he was forced to resign.
Under a new Pope, Rienzi made a brief return to power
but was killed and burned after an uprising.

Of course, of course, there's Rienzi the Horse;
the horse the town was not named after.
This famous Morgan horse was named after the town.

My fiancÚ and I visited New Orleans in 1995 and

I was trying to name my puppy later that year,
I came across the match
box from the restaurant and it just clicked!
We call him Z!
Thanks for such a beautiful site!"

This is a beautiful setting for a Cajun-Creole restaurant
with an Italian name.
Especially the courtyard setting.
This restaurant is no longer in business.

Paraguayan Supreme Court summons President

The Supreme Court in Paraguay has called on the public prosecutor's office to start legal action against President Raul Cubas for his refusal to jail the former army chief Lino Oviedo.

On Friday, President Cubas refused to order General Oviedo, a friend and close political ally, to begin a 10-year prison sentence for attempting a military coup in 1996.

The head of the Supreme Court, Wildo Rienzi, said that the President could be charged with contempt of court.

Happy to join the Rienzi family.

The freedom of Rome shall be the law which shall blind every Roman;
strictly punished violence and crime shall be and every criminal
shall be Rome's foe.  Let the gates of Rome be barred, as they now are, to the tyrant.
Welcome he that brings peace and swears
allegiance to the law.  May our rage strike the enemy,
the blasphemer's follower's shall be destroyed, so that the pilgrim shall be happy and free,
and the sheep peacefully follow the shepherd. 
So swear to protect the law, swear, free Romans, a sacred oath
Here, then is my final words!
As long as the seven hills of Rome are standing,
as long as the Eternal City does not perish,
you will see Rienzi return!
Cola di Rienzi
