Sean Penn’s islands, &c.

Sean Penn gave me a college memory earlier this week: He was down in Argentina, pronouncing on “the Malvinas.” That’s what the Argentines call the Falkland Islands. And that’s what the people around me in college called them too.

Why would the Left have sided with a junta (Argentina) over a liberal democracy (Britain)? Well, mainly because they viewed the conflict as a brown-white thing. (Of course, many Argentines would die to think of themselves as brown.)
