Welcome to the 21st century. Too bad we have to take so much of the rest of the planet with us while we’re killing ourselves off.

Is Martin Torrijos related to the former military dictator Gen. Omar Torrijos?

Yes. I think he's his nephew, but it might be his son. I don't remember.

It's politics as usual in Panamá. I was really hoping Guillermo Endara would get re-elected, as he would have brought strong leadership and integrity instead of the constant pursuit of the dollar.

Political Leadership
If it was far enough off the beaten path, like the oil-rich lands in North Alaska that are at risk of being Bush-whacked, nobody would get worked up about it. Panama is simply too small.

Re: Political Leadership
Plenty of people are getting worked up about what's going on regarding Alaska. It was especially a big point in the 2000 elections.

Re: Political Leadership
The problem has been eclipsed by Terry Schiavo and Micheal Jackson. I haven't seen anything in the paper about it for a long time.

Re: Political Leadership
The agenda is set by the president and the congressional majority. The Republicans won and feel they have a mandate. Thus, you don't hear about it. It is definitely on the radar during the election season, though.

Re: Political Leadership
Plus they control what the media prints or televises. What we have access to has been filtered / censored to keep from making our leadership look so bad. That, of course, takes a lot of filtering.

Re: Political Leadership
Yes, I thought that was implied.
