As for your update on checking my sources, I did. If a respectable blogger and a magazine, with little respect, break the news independently – there is no way it’s not true.

And they say obsessing about fonts is useless, Ha! :)

I hope they didn’t cut it from the bundle.

I got quite excited until I read: “… exploratory meeting … took place on April 1, 2006.”

Now I’m sulking.

I do speak Spanish passably, but I didn’t realize that Dec 28 was “Day of the Innocents” when I posted this. For the enlightenment of others, I found this link which explains some of the Spanish seasonal traditions, including Dec 28:

Many foreigners who are in Spain become very confused as absurd or incredible news appears in the papers, municipal governments stage baffling practical jokes on their citizens, and friends and acquaintances cannot be trusted for their word.
