"The 'black man' as you call him has a name: Tokyo Sexwale."

That is not helping. The first time I came across that name in The Economist, it took me 5 minutes to stop laughing. Which was a problem as my wife was looking to use the bathroom.

Sepp Blatter is, I believe, the German name for a urinary tract disease.

I just heard from Sexwale. He is into geographic names and asked if I had ever heard of Ron Mexico.

I don't think of him as old or naive ... just stupid.
