  • asombra: Carlos, the monkeys are hideous. The top one reminds me of Woody Allen, and the paired ones remind me of Mia Farrow. Yikes.

  • asombra: “If the desired ultimate result is truly the democratization of our nation…” Sorry, but that is NOT the goal...

  • asombra: It never ceases to strike me how these two bastards who were NEVER real soldiers and NEVER risked their own necks spent DECADES...

  • asombra: Such classy people, our dictators. As classy as they look.

  • asombra: That’s OK. Nobody seriously expects them to; it’s just a useful dodge.

A Brief Explanation of Spain

A guest post from Asombra:

A Brief Explanation of Spain

The Spanish novelist Pío Baroja said this in 1904. Evidently, it still applies.

"In truth, there are seven classes of people in Spain...yes, like the seven capital sins. Thus:

  1. Those who don't know.
  2. Those who don't want to know.
  3. Those who hate knowledge.
  4. Those who suffer because they don't know.
  5. Those who pretend to know.
  6. Those who succeed without knowing.
  7. Those who live off the fact that others don't know. This last class call themselves politicians, and sometimes even intellectuals."
