I hope President Bartlett handles it better than he did last week.

Yeah. There was a thread on Colombia maybe a week or two ago and it was dead as well.

I wonder if people don't care or if they feel they don't know enough to comment...?

locombia: I've been following it for some months now, and I'm so disheartened I hardly have the energy to complain. I don't know who these imperialist cowboy scumbags think they're kidding.

I feel that way about it, too, sometimes. Why does that happen? :-(

Its also discouraging that the level of awareness in the US does not seem to be terribly high...
