Voices of a People's History of the United States brings to life the extraordinary history of ordinary people who built the movements that made the United States what it is today, ending slavery and Jim Crow, protesting war and the genocide of Native Americans, creating unions and the eight hour work day, advancing women's rights and LGBTQ liberation, and struggling to right wrongs of the day.

L'acteur Viggo Mortensen, qui incarne le personnage d'Aragorn dans la trilogie du «Seigneur des anneaux», était de passage à Sare dans le Pays basque, mi-août et plus particulièrement à l'hôtel-restaurant Lastiry. L'acteur américano-danois, grand amateur de palombes, avait fait spécialement le déplacement de Tolosa où réside sa belle famille, pour déguster celle de Sare.

Au dessert, il a eu «la surprise et la fierté», dira-t-il, de se voir intronisé en tant que chevalier d'honneur de la palombe du village. Il s'est vu remettre sa médaille de chevalier et un béret basque. Il n'y a pas d'ambassadeur mieux positionné pour respecter le serment qu'il a naturellement prononcé à savoir « valoriser le volatile sur la terre entière».

Il devrait être de retour l'année prochaine pour une nouvelle visite gourmande. On a hâte de l'entendre pour sa première année en responsabilité de la promotion de l'oiseau bleu.
