The full title of this aside:

TITO AND PINOCHET: A WHOLLY UNSCIENTIFIC 12-SECOND COMPARISON OF THE POP CULTURE LEGACIES OF TWO DICTATORS FROM THE 1970s (and 1980s), ONE FROM THE LEFT AND ONE FROM THE RIGHT

Two decades after Yugoslavia burst at the seams, the hip, pierced and tattooed crowd in Slovenia and other former Yugoslav republics proudly wear Tito t-shirts.

In Chile, twenty-plus years after the fall of the dictatorship, the hip, pierced and tattooed do not wear Pinochet t-shirts.
