    I came to realize something regarding the political situation in the US, and now I see it applies to Nicaragua as well. The time for op/ed articles is over. Ms. Belli may have the answers, or at least ask the right questions, but we all know that nothing will be done. No actions will be forthcoming as a result of her, or any American journalist or pontificator’s words in the media. The cavalry isn’t coming. There are no white-hatted cowboys coming to untie the girl on the railroad track.

    As Bill’s clip form Hitchhiker’s Guide the other day showed, everyone is just sitting around making documentaries about themselves. Politicians are now no more than sports stars, when our guy wins we cheer, and boo the other team, and when our guy loses we whine and stamp our feet - and NOTHING CHANGES. There’s always next season, and it all happens again. Life is what you miss while you’re waiting for politicians to solve problems.
