Interesting, but everyone knows that pizza was invented in Gary, Indiana in the 1940s.

If ever there is a Hall of Fame for RF threads, the original Gary thread (along with the 'most unwelcoming' thread) will get in on the first ballot

You did know, I trust, that Gary is also famous for being the location of the very first Chinese restaurant outside China. And, it's where spaghetti was invented. And it's all thanks to Gary native Marco Polo who, by the way, was not a popular kid in his home town when he was growing up. In fact, the kids used to tease him all the time, and they bullied him, too. They called him Markey Mark and he hated that. Summers growing up were especially unhappy times for young Marco. At the city swimming pool the kids would splash him and play a game in which they would call out his first name and the first kid to yell Polo would get to duck little Marco. In fact, it was because of the way he was treated that he determined to become a famous explorer and open his own Chinese restaurant.

This is the most unwelcoming post I have ever seen.

A few facts about Argentina that few Americans know:
 
1)  It is twice the size of France, Germany, and Italy combined.  (Blame that pesky Mercator Projection).
 
2)  It has always been a land of immense agricultural and mineral wealth and had - in the early years of the 20th. Century - a higher GDP than either France or Germany.
 
3)  It rivals (or exceeds) the United States in citizens of Italian heritage.  And, as the state religion of Argentina was (and is) Roman Catholicism, they received significant waves of Italian immigration well before the United States.
 
So, I am very willing to consider Argentina as the true Mother of Pizza.

For those of you who have never thought of vacationing in Argentina (or Brazil or Chile) you really are missing a splendid experience.  Fear not, they are "safe" and "clean"; the hotels and restaurants rival any to be found anywhere.  And, as their summer is our winter, a two week vacation December - February is absolutely guaranteed to cure your seasonal affective disorder!  Otherwise, there is always Gary, Indiana.

And it is a great example of how bad/dishonest government can ruin a great country


W.E.B. Griffin (a pen name) spends a lot of time there, and has woven Argintina into a lot of his stories. His writing about outdoor cooking facilities makes me want one........and if memory serves me, he has written about the pizza.
