Wise Gringos

One wag on Twitter (okay, it was me) asked, “When #Sotomayor is confirmed, will others have to call themselves #wisegringos?” (The annoying hashtags are apparently de rigeur on Twitter as a means of differentiating the cognoscenti from the hoi polloi.)

Thus far, the response has been positive.   For the sheer hell of it, I bought wisegringo.com which, surprisingly, was still available.   No idea what I’ll do with it.  A wise gringo would probably have a plan.

    Well, you were wise to get it, and, yes, seems surprising that it was stil available. Agree with Sam, cover the playing field with gringa.
