Recommended for those of you who don't want to spend your life on the subject but do want a good handle on what it's all about. Nice reporting, Marcos Aquino. Here's the link again, so there's no excuse not to link through.
UPDATE: Great job done by site friend UnTalLucas at his blog. He took photos of the "spontaneous" protest in front of the Nica Embassy today that has been getting media coverage. Jeesh, talk about rent-a-crowd...I love the one of the police officers leaning on their shields and looking bored to death. Go see for yourself.
