Did you know that?

The Nobel committee just announced their yearly awards?  Of course you did.

Did you know that I’m reading a book by a Nobel winner—Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez?  Of course you did (especially if you know how to look in my sidebar).

Did you know that this year’s Nobel winner for literature was Mario Vargas Llosa?  Maybe.

But, did you know that Mario Vargas Llosa and Gabriel Garcia Marquez once got into a fistfight? I bet you didn’t.

That article will tell you why they engaged in fisticuffs, but I personally think it was to see who had the better three-part name.
