Elba wrote:The academy deny the Literature nobel to Jorge Luis Borges, and argentin writter, and one of the best -i think the best- of latinamerican authors.

Well, you know, they say it wasn't Borges who didn't get the Nobel Prize but pretty much the other way round: it was "The Nobel Prize" which didn't get Borges! Shame on Nobel Prize...

Some authors get Nobel Prizes cuz their books r 4 Nobel,and the others don`t get it cuz their books rn`t 4 a Nobel Prize.
If you don`t like me remember it's mind over matter..I don't mind and you don't matter..
