    In the police, no one is mistreated!

    And if there were, they left quietly...

    Brilliant ideas...

    Friends, let's change incandescent bulbs for high efficiencies to reduce consumption!

    Yes! After all, with the rate hike then they'll consume less light we'll pay more!

    Yes, these border on extortion. My sis-in-law graduated from UCAN in Leon. Annual tuition ran some $250; monthly fees were $29 normally, infrequently more. After 4 & ½ years of study & hard work, at times, struggling to pass all courses, she faced the final hurdle. To graduate, she had to cough up more than $900. The asp's bite. That was several years ago. (Monthly fees are now $49, I know.) Without that diploma, it's hard to get a good-paying job.

    It's like the bubble payment on a car deal - one must prepare to take the hit years in advance. Those who don't never really get a chance to meet the repo man.

    OK, who's the macho man walking on all fours, with his knuckles? (Love Molina's touch - putting hair on the universal sign for male.)

    I was wondering who it was, too. Yes, his caricatures are brilliant!

    Oh, good. So it wasn't just me who was confused on who the "ladies man" is.

    May 1st International Workers' Day for the great majority of nations of the world, a holiday. Not for English-speaking North America. Although last year on May 1 the Occupy Wall St movement stood up for the 99%, but that was last year. This year many throughout Asia marched for the 430+ garment workers killed on-the-job in Bangladesh. Our labor day in September marks the beginning of school, where the young are educated to become productive laborers.

    It's Mayorga, the boxer. I think as many Nicaraguans will watch the fight hoping he loses as those who watch to see him win...

    And after the meeting with Obama in the Central American Summit?

    You, what do you think?

    After who knows!

    What are talking about? That if Obama is going to drop more money for security? That if he's going to insist on reform for our immigrants?

    No, that if we go back to see if Chinchilla and Ortega are seated at the same table...

    Nica Dispatch guest blog about how El Nuevo Diario has "lost its sense of humor" after being bought by bankers and canceling the Sunday cartoon supplement "El Alacran" which was in great part a product of Pedro Molina. http://www.nicaraguadispatch.com/new...-of-humor/7524

    Sycophants all, sucking up to power. Then again, since they own it, why can't they steer it into becoming a pro-business, pro-administration propaganda rag? Did any take an oath to "truth & fairness"? We've long ago learned that 'news' comes slanted by whomever pays to report it. For 'information', like all else, it's buyer beware!

    INSS will not make reforms! (At least for this year)

    How marvelous!

    That means that... Let's see... If with the actual law I need 25 more years to retire...

    I only have 24 years of anxiety!

    'Zozobra' would be a killer word in Spanish Scrabble (but: are there 2 Z's in the game?) I had to look it up. From education.yahoo.com I find,

    1. (naufragio) shipwreck, capsizing
    2. (hundimiento) sinking
    3. meteorology dangerous weather
    4. figurative (perdición) jeopardy, ruination
    5. (inquietud) anxiety, worry
    vivir en una perpetua zozobra = to fret constantly

    You nailed it, but I personally like 'jeopardy' as a fitting translation here. That's only because I've never met an anxious Nica. Surely somewhere?
