I suspect that the people of Mor�n are used to hearing jokes from gringos who think they're being original. As a defense, they have become very secretive, revealing their location only to those ingenious enough to, say, look up "Mor�n" in an atlas, or maybe go so far as to take a wild guess where an internet address ending in ".ar" might be found. (Hint - it's not in Zimbabwe.) [This message has been edited by Jim Yingst (edited May 11, 2001).]

Isnt there a Mor�n in Cuba also (No. I do not refer to El Lider Maximo , I speak of a town called Mor�n ).

Hi, Mr sheriff Jim Yingst, may I know what is "Mor*"? By the way how do you read the chinese character after "Mor"? I've tried to find the character in a chinese dictionary without any luck.

Hey. Johnson Chong, you're a ranchand, why so that you don't know how to read the chinese word? By the way, I myself do not know too. And thanks for asking on my behalf, if that's what you're trying to do. :-)

If you're seeing a Chinese character, that's probably because your browser is using a different encoding scheme than this Web site assumes. It should be "Moron", where the second "o" has an accent mark over it. I typed this in HTML using "& oacute;" (without the space), meaning "o with an acute accent" - a character entity which should be understood by any valid HTML browser. However our UBB software seems to have converted this to a single character in Western European ISO encoding, which unfortunately means something entirely different in whatever encoding you use. If you use Internet Explorer, go to View->Encoding->Western European (ISO) to see this text as it was intended. Sahir- yes, there's a Mor�n in Venezuela as well. Possibly others, but those were the three which had articles in brittanica.com. (I don't know nearly as much as I act like I do - I just know where to find good references.) Looks like the one in Argentina has about ten times the population of either of the other two though. Actually my first thought was to look through the university's web site itself to see if they had pictures or maps, but I couldn't find any. Of course, my knowledge of Spanish is pretty limited - but still, don't most universities want to show off their campus to attract potential students? Maybe they have a bandwidth limitation - or just an ugly campus. [This message has been edited by Jim Yingst (edited May 12, 2001).]
