Breaking news from Néstor Amarilla in Asunción: All is forgiven!

Virility and grace

For nimble thought can jump both sea and land.” A few short hours after I posted my apology for inadvertantly giving Néstor Amarilla a sex-change operation, I received this gracious email from Paraguay, under the subject line “Apologies Accepted”:

Señora Cynthia,

My U.S. representative just passed me the link to your blog and I read your apology, which wasn’t necessary, but thank you anyway for bringing back my virility.

Saludos desde Asunción.

Néstor Amarilla

Thank you, Señor Amarilla!  Good luck on the Nobel thingumme!  I very much look forward to reading your plays!  In translation … alas! (I know, “kill me, kill me…“)
