	No need to be sarcastic, Proyect...

	I assume you are a fluent speaker of spanish, so I don't think I
need to tell you that 'tercera' means 'third', here used as in 'Third Way'
-- a concept I would assume anyone here would be VERY familiar with -- so
I don't think I need to give you the benefit of my 'wisdom' on it...

	I used it in the spanish as sarcasm against the 'Third Way' types
everywhere, not just those among the Sandinistas, who are constantly
selling their people short against Capital.

	First off, I'm a CANADIAN.

	Second, I did MOST of my work for the *FMLN*, but it JUST SO
HAPPENS that I'm wearing my 'Tools for Peace' T-shirt as I write this --
so this little challenge of yours comes up a bit short...

	And just WHY are you using this tack with me??
