 The Ferrara Social Security Plan, Revised 12/22/03
Ferrara presents his reductions in government spending as though they would require only a moderate degree of restraint: a reduction in the rate of federal spending growth of one percent per year for eight years.
Ferrara calculates the assumed spending reductions as a percentage of total federal spending, he includes Social Security in the federal spending base for purposes of calculating the spending reduction percentage, despite the fact that it is off limits to cuts under his plan.
Ferrara has shown is that he is willing to adopt implausible assumptions, and that if one assumes general-revenue transfers equal to nearly twice the entire Social Security shortfall, long-term Social Security solvency can be restored (and large private accounts created) without any benefit cuts or payroll tax increases.

 Abel Ferrara (film retrospective)
Ferrara may be the most patient director in American movies today, possessed of a deeply contemplative sensibility under a patina of hardcore low-life.
With the hard dedication of a Rodin, Ferrara carves out a wrenchingly physical representation of movie work (which is the point of collapsing the barriers between realities), and creates a collapsible and ambiguous sense of onscreen time that approximates the lost hours of making a film.
Listening to Ferrara speak, always on a plane of bedrock necessity, you realize how much time most filmmakers spend justifying themselves, assuring their interrogators that they have a serious theme (like Tarantino proclaiming to the multitides that the pornographically violent Pulp Fiction is a film about "redemption").

 ORDER VACATING SENTENCE OF VINCENT FERRARA   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The court now understands that Ferrara's position was "untenable" because he felt compelled to plead guilty to the Limoli murder charges or face a real risk of what he adamantly asserts would have been a wrongful conviction resulting in a life sentence.
Therefore, proving that Ferrara conspired with Barone to murder Limoli on behalf of the Patriarca Family was especially important to the government's goal of incapacitating Ferrara and Patriarca for life.
Ferrara also claimed that even if no evidence had been suppressed and no charges dismissed, if he had known of the government's misconduct he would not have entered a guilty plea that foreclosed his right to appeal the denial of his motion to suppress the evidence of the induction ceremony.

 The Great Facade; Christopher Ferrara, Integrists, defender of schism, Integrism   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Ferrara's unenviable task (a paid lawyer must automatically file his counter-brief on behalf of his client, no matter how hopeless and miserable the case, as John Loughnan reminds us) is to convince people that his sect is guilty of none of the errors we attribute to them based on their own published words and works.
FERRARA: From there Hand jumps to the claim that the ISOCC video and certain "traditionalist personalities and papers" declare "that the visible Church is no longer the Church" and that they are guilty of "heretical sedevacantism." This charge Hand bases entirely on a false characterization of the ISOCC video, which says nothing of the kind.
Ferrara opposes the Indult mentality because it is Catholic, i.e., because it is in communion with, and approved by, the Vicar of Christ, and his (Ferrara's and Matt's) hermeneutics of suspicion, evasion and separation would rather frame the Pope as anti-catholic, with Michael Matt as the arbiter of truth now.

 Destinations: Ferrara
Ferrara's history begins nearly 1,300 years ago, when it began as a Byzantine military castrum ('fortified city'), established on the banks of the Po.
In 1115 A.D., Ferrara became a free commune, and during that same year work began on the city's new Cathedral (which was consecrated later, in 1135).
As Ferrara grew, its illustrious university was established, and the Estense family—who dominated the court from 1208 to 1598—brought many renowned writers, painters, and musicians to the city (including Cosmé Tura, Francesco del Cossa, Ercole de' Roberti, Dosso Dossi, Ludovico Ariosto, Torquato Tasso, and Gerolamo Frescobaldi).

Ferrara is first mentioned in documents dating to the 8th century A.A. They refer to a ``ducatus ferrariæ'' or ``duchy of Ferrara'' that a certain Desiderius had pledged in 757 to Pope Stephen II.
In the meantime the city itself, the walled ring of which had already been extended to include the walls of what are now Viale Cavour and Corso Giovecca, under Ercole I (1471-1505) was further fortified in grandiose style, extended and embellished with the famous ``Addizione Erculea'' built by the court architect Biagio Rossetti.
Ferrara became a frontier province of the powerful Papal State, the principal piece of work of the 17th century being the construction of the Fortress, demolished in 1859.
