Another Thing I Had No Idea Was a Potential Source of Wounded National Pride

British actress Gemma Atherton is going to be the next Bond girl. Okay, I don't give a shit either, but because part of the film is set in South America (which, astute readers will note, does not include Mexico), people here hoped (assumed?) that the role would go to a Mexicana (possibly one of these three). It didn't. The press is pissed. Presumably this has been a source of bitterness going back, retroactively, to 1962.
