The Angular Momentum is due to Rodrigo Diaz, El Cid, spinning in his tomb in Burgos.

I think it is more "shake, rattle and roll" - that old armour does make noise being rotated. One thing You got to realise about Spain is there has always been a strong communist element in the country - that's why they had the civil war - it has been suppressed and no-one will volunteer a communist oppinion, but the misconceptions are still there.

Thomas, true there is a traditional communist component in Spain, but I'd think that the public's indeniable anti-americanism is more rooted in the old American-Franquist connection as well as in the traditional support of Spain of South American countries against their northern gringo Yankee (or Yanqui) neighbour.
