Nope. I've noticed on more than one website wingnuts like to imply that a person is

gay without knowing anything about that person. It's like these chumps still think

it's 1985. Wingnuts=Hilarious.

Tobias Smollett. 18th century 

Scottish novelist.

Famed for his Don Quixote translation too. Of course, I prefer the John Ormsby translation myself. Far more pretty and accurate.

Yes and another doctor/writer. The only DQ translation I've read is the J.M. Cohen one for

Penguin Classics. I think it was replaced by another translation some time ago. From what

I can tell it has a pretty good reputation overall. New translations of classic literary works

seem to come out every few years, usually claiming to be an improvement on those of the

past. I take those claims with a grain of salt.

I read a modern translation of Don Quixote in Spanish.

It may have been easier than your English translations.

CNN is running two articles related to this made-up story of an assault. 

Considering how it vies to be the leader in Fake News, CNN must be bereft over this hoax being so obvious even it has to admit it.

Not for me, since I can't read Spanish. :)
