Reading an article about the internet and it's potential to forestall conflict, I stumbled across this page
. Nobel literature prize winner Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clezio said in a speech in Stockholm earlier today that, if we had had the internet in WWII, maybe "Hitler's criminal plot would not have succeeded - ridicule might have prevented it from ever seeing the light of day," which is an interesting point.
Of course, speculation over the past is well and good - but where's the Duke City connection? Well, it just so turns out that,"though he was born in France, Le Clezio's father is British and he holds dual nationality with Mauritius, where his family has roots. He spends much of his time in Albuquerque, New Mexico."
Apparently Albuquerque just has
nobel prizewinners kind of hanging around. To which the proper burqueno responds with a shrug and a "yeah, so?".
