As Néstor Miguel Gorojovsky says, "Maradona is an organic representative of the less favoured classes of the Argentinean people," the only elite fútbol player "who dared to organize an international union of players," earning "the perennial hatred of the gang of highwaymen who lead football internationally. . . . To many the world over, and of course in Argentina, atheists included like me, this boy-man is one of the few serious arguments that might prove that God exists" (Marxmail 30 Mar. 2005).

I promoted your fine blog spot through my email distribution list and reprinted a small portion detailing the "58 bullets for every adult Iraqis and child" it received a critical remark from a Kansas representative Kay O'Connor! She is a notorious anti - abortion religious conservative in this state (Kansas.

Her comment,"what a waste."

Thank you for providing this information. Mike in Kansas
