Surely I'm not the only one to have noticed the extraordinary resemblance between Libyan rebel leader Gen. Abdul Fattah Younis and English cricketing legend Ian Botham.

                      Botham                                     Younis

I wonder if by any chance they're related. I think we should be told.

Totally off-topic, but I need help translating a sentence in a short-story:

Do you, Baby Chou or any of your other UK friends, know if there was there ever a gastronomy star in the British Isles, possibly back in the '80s, named Kate Dunne? (Mind out of the gutter, please). Here's a rough translation of the sentence, which is about "massa sovada" (round sweet yeast bread):

"Was it not true that this genuine product of the Islands had even managed to enter the menu of a star the magnitude of Kate Dunne?"

I've Googled on the name as well as on spelling variations of it, but can't find her. Of course, it being a work of fiction, the author may have simply made up the name ;-) But if you can locate a reliable URL, I'd be most grateful if you'd post it here.
