Greetings to WAISdom (Stanley Payne, USA, 09/20/22 3:33 am)

Thank you for the birthday greetings as I reach an age I once could not have imagined (88), and thanks also to Consoly León Arias for her generous words concerning the "homenaje" ceremony in Madrid, which I was unable to attend. It was planned in recognition of my work as a Hispanist, though nowadays Americans seem to know me or refer to me more as a fascistologist, a specialty suddenly in journalistic demand thanks to both Trump and his enemies, both of whom are reckless in the way they throw language around.

Thanks also to to you for your attentive and gracious work managing WAIS. The invasion of Ukraine has shown WAIS at its best with original and incisive commentary, particularly from Cameron Sawyer. Sorry that I normally don't have the time to contribute, but on that theme I have little to add.

Keep up the good work and all the best.

JE comments:  Prof. Payne (I feel too bashful to call you Stanley), I am grateful and flattered.  It's an honor to have you aboard the Goodship WAIS!  I presume you receive a lot of (unsolicited) requests from the media for comments on how the Franco era relates to the current political drama in the US.  My first thought is "not at all," but some alarmists are warning us about a possible armed insurrection, especially if Trump is prosecuted.  Do you see any meaningful parallels?
