    Imagine the results if Argentina were running the islanders' educational system. The Argentina where only about 40 percent of its young people even complete its dumbed-down secondary schools, where its public-school teachers seem to prefer street demonstrations to classrooms.

    In the note, 70 days this year with no classes in this province. It later grew to 140 days. Of course, this bankrupt province has a Kirchner for a governor:

    “ Crisis educativa en Santa Cruz: van 70 días sin clases y los docentes acampan frente a la Casa de Gobierno”

    But then, I suspect the islanders don't want to have anything to do with Argentistan. On the other hand, Santa Cruz province might well benefit from the management and technology of the Falklands just as it did 100 years ago.

    Sassy obviously doesn't know that in this part of Ireland a girl who is 'sassy' is the same thing as what the English call a 'slapper'
