Tango: my life as a not-so-good leader

And you thought that YOU were the worst dancer in the world ?

Honest 

I had noticed an A.T blog by a guy named Neil Liveakos (Atlanta, Georgia, United States), and had decided
to ignore, reject and despise it because Neil is politically involved on the Republican side. Yet I might change my mind, as he is currently posting about his BsAs trip (Who hasn't, by the way? Even I will probably do it when I'll be back from the CITA festival, in March). And in one of his reports
http://milongas.blogspot.com/2004/12/3rd-trip-to-bsas-martes.html

I found this:
Sylvia [a portena] asked how long I had been dancing. I said six years. She said that she didn't believe me. She said it felt more like six months.

To post something like this, this guy must not be only an arrogant, never-read-a-book, US-flag-in-the-pickup, beer-drinking, fat, the-whole-world-belongs-to-us minded, junk-food eater, utterly stupid US nerd. It seems he also has some ounces of honesty, courage and self-irony.

And as a foot-note, I'm not surprised by the other form of honesty displayed by the portena. They express themselves in a quite direct mode. I still remember how the only one I danced with in BsAs concluded after the tanda:
"It was difficult for me to stay with you, because I was always in the rythm, while you almost never were."
