Clarification.
I've missed these ones; you know, the ones that are ever so barely fiction.

And again, you see how easy it is to Wold-Newtonize your fics? This one connects seamlessly to the one about the guy who was selling favela kids to European football clubs :D

For next week's headlines: the Gene Cartel Wars.

Ha, that made no sense, until I looked up who Maradona was. Then, it's awesome!

Heh. Glad you liked it! Living in Argentina, sometimes I forget that not everybody in the whole planet knows who Diego Maradona is :P (although he's by far the best known person from Argentina, much to my changrin).

In a similar vein, a few months ago I mentioned The Daily Show to people at work, at not one of them (even although they are media- and net-savvy people) had even heard of it! I was flabbergasted.

Well, strangely enough, I'm currently listening to Me vs. Maradona vs. Elvis by Brand New, so obviously some Americans do know him... It's just that football-soccer doesn't get the same attention here that it does in most countries, so unless you follow it (I don't, but I have a friend who does) you don't hear the names at all. All the media coverage goes to American football, blech.
