@fbaezer,
Double thanks, Pancho.

I can imagine there are many stories there - re Nicaragua, for example.

Last I looked I'm ahead of you in fantasy baseball but I'll probably dive soon enough.

@ossobuco,
It occurs to me that maybe you don't know some of us would be interested on your takes or plain reports on stuff going on. I assume you are busy, but want you to know some will listen.

Wow, Roussef less popular than the Guatamalan president being impeached.

@hingehead,
A million and a half persons marched two weeks ago asking for Roussef''s resignation or impeachment.

We won't be measuring Otto Pérez Molina anymore.
The Guatemalan president resigned, amidst a corruption scandal.

@fbaezer,
I think Harper is dropping again this week. The combination of Harperman and the dreadful dreadful events re the Syrian refugees is not good for him.

Mulcair and Trudeau are slamming him again today. His refusal to say anything is, i think, a bad strategy.

@Setanta,
Harper has commented. In the past, he just ignores difficult questions and waits for them to go away. He can't do that with an election a month away. His response is, in my never humble opinion, less than satisfactory, but it is a response. Now we will have to see what Mulcair and Trudeau make of it.

The awful Tony Abbott's disapproval rate is 53% as of 1st December.

That's scarily low

@Setanta,
I don't know what Mulcair and Trudeau said to Harper about Syria but he got slammed bigtime by pretty much everyone the CBC interviewed in the last 36 hours.


(polls reported yesterday gave him 25 and 27% - which is pretty much the hardcore "my grandparents voted PC" group)
