  1. Poor Borges has a very bad crush with Fox… Maybe you remember when the lady he appointed in Culture and Arts Council re-christened him “José Luis Borgues”… What a shame my country and language come to world’s spotlight just by pena ajena issues… Sorry in the name of barely cultivated Mexican people.

    Maybe the former President is “Pre-vidente” and he is anticipating a future Nobel for Mr. Borges ;).
    What a shame :<
