Thank you for the update;it seems to me that FIFA earns enough profit to pay for adequate security at most events...not exactly rocket science.Even the poorer nations could ask for a donation from the wealthier ones if they lacked funds...one would think........

On a different topic,I've already had a sad morning because someone who's been a dear friend for almost 20 years basically sent me a hateful letter in response to my questioning a political candidate he endorsed.I told him in the initial letter that I agreed with him about how repugnant the other guy was...but he couldn't accept my comments that his candidate was only somewhat better than the jerk...and NOT a moral paragon in his own right.We'll see if he replies to my follow-up letter;if not,then the NON-response will silently speak volumes,I suppose

I was curious about the bit "No need to get into too much trouble in GM over this." What is the "this?" Was there an incident of some kind?

Here's a video of one of our presidential front-runners trying to show off for everyone and tell us how smart he supposedly is(take note of the fact that he's totally dependent on his script...great eye contact,huh?)....if you laugh at the vid below,it doesn't make you a racist,per se,because a Mexican encouraged you in this case

Our sitting president,Felipe Calderon,actually speaks English very well,btw

Exactly, you can't expect it to make sense before #30. It's the same old trouble with modern youth... they don't do the proper preparitory work

Aye, well.

The two ones I mentioned seemed to be opposing fans kicking off at each other. I don't think that many people expected it to happen at an Argyle - Exeter match. I didn't.

Have thought for a while now that anyone who had fantasies of being a real-life O'Brien might very well gravitate to TF and try to control an individual forum in the same manner....that wouldn't exclude mini-Marx wannabes who were dissatisfied with their puny influence on the world ideological scene...or those with delusions of becoming the next Chairman Mao--only to reach their peak as Municipal Animal Control Facilitators(a.k.a. Dog-catchers) in the People's Party
