Chart of the day is........

....a survey taken by Peru's Universidad Catolica (PUCP) about the verdict expected today in the Fujimori trial.

For me, the main thing to take away from this survey is that 24% of Peruvians truly are insane. The Fujimori sentencing circus starts at 9am Lima time. And winner of the "overkill of the week" award is Mercedes Cabanillas, the Peruvian Interior Minister. She's put 10,000 extra police on the streets of Lima to avoid problems when maybe 50 would have been about right. Don't expect surprises.
