I received an interesting request last week: Would I answer the questions a student, Jordi Secall, at the University of Barcelona had about my feelings regarding Barack Obama? Sure, why not, I thought. So I did. You can read the questions — and my answers — at La Política Ha Mort.
Interestingly, I also learned something very interesting about Barcelona: It’s in Catalonia, which was annexed by Spain in the early 1700s. Catalan is still spoken there, and this particular blog (with the exception of question and answers in English) is written in Catalan, not Spanish. Sometimes we forget just how many rich heritages there are around the world. I am excited to learn a little bit more about Catalonia in the next day or two.
