Gente Culta

Cómo los gringos pueden ser la única superpotencia que queda en el mundo es algo que nunca he podido entender, especialmente despues de leer historias como ésta:

Olympic volleyball fan and New Mexico resident Wade Miller recently tried to order Olympic tickets by phone, but found out operators for the '96 Games were "geographically impaired," according to the ATLANTA CONSTITUTION. After telling the operator he was from New Mexico, Miller was put on hold. The operator then came back and said she couldn't sell tickets to someone who lives outside the country. Miller spent half an hour trying to convince the agent that New Mexico is a state. She then transferred him to her supervisor who responded, "Sir, New Mexico, old Mexico, it doesn't matter. I understand it's a territory, but you still have to go through your nation's Olympic committee." ACOG officials said the incident was a one-time occurrence.
