list of world's top 50 murder capitals for 2011

And Nicaragua is NOT on it, thanks to ...(tell us why you think that is)? Nor is Costa Rica, nor Ecuador, nor Canada (of course), ... however 45 of the 50 most violent cities in the world are found on the American continent. 40 of those top 50 are in Latin America, 4 are in the USA. Here's the article from Foreign Policy that begins:
"Living in Latin America, it seems, can be hazardous to your health. A combination of drugs, organized crime, and governments that are, at times,

The cat is out of the bag

by Daddy-YO on 04-12-2011 at 11:46 AM
That is to say, our querida, jodida León, 'the cat' in a manner of speaking, is on display to the world. Today's TRN Daily News (Thanks Tom!) links to an item in the US News & World Report (April 11, 2011) titled, "5 Places to Retire for Under $500 per Month" by Kathleen Peddicord. Here's what she writes about our winter home,

Re: cookshow´s The Rockman Cometh

My apologies for not posting in the proper thread, but I´m here, unwired as it were, on Nica time, visiting a neighborhood cyber, and got thinking on what cookshow wrote, in particular, "The thiefing problem here is difficult to explain, it is a bigger issue than just the theft."

While waiting to fly out

by Daddy-YO on 04-29-2010 at 12:57 PM
Ten days ago I flew into Atlantic City from Managua on Spirit. It seems to me the airline could have picked a better name - Spirit suggests an afterlife state of being, a visitation, or the Looney: fly with Casper. But what's in a name, a rose by any other ... , so I bought a ticket. It cost me U$231 (all fees included) one way, booking 5 weeks in advance. [Checking AA at the same time, it'd have cost me $540 ($404 before fees; one must take a few steps into the reservation process on the internet
