Shortly after the terrible happenings in New York on September 11, 2001, a young man in Colorado Springs painted on the side of his van this question: “Do you know what happened on September 11, 1973?”
Early one morning in 1985 in Cochabamba, Bolivia, I heard music coming from a neighbor’s house. I recognized the tune as a song of Simon and Garfunkle.
I was driving down Central Avenue in my home towm, Cheyenne, Wyoming, when I heard the news that the Venezuelan president, Hugo Chávez had died. I pulled over and called friends. I hurt from my head to my toes. I have never met Chávez personally, but I feel I have known him for nineteen years.
Whenever I have asked someone in Venezuela if spring comes before or after summer, some answer “before” and others “after.” Almost all add that they really are not sure.
A few days ago I saw on CNN an interview with a woman who has lived in Libya for several years. She is no fan of Moammar Gadhafi.
Shortly after arriving in Venezuela I remember hearing a conversation between two children, maybe four or five-years-old, that shocked me.
Last night I had a call from a friend in the United States. In the midst of our long conversation, I mentioned my disgust at the manner in which Bin Laden had been buried.
Dear Friend: Recently you wrote indicating that you are thinking about moving to Venezuela and asked for my advice. Let me give you some questions for your consideration.
Last Memorial Day (2010), I once again had the privilege of running in the 10K race in Boulder, Colorado—the Bolder Boulder.
In recent days I heard a CNN reporter refer to the U.S. policy in Egypt as a balancing act between American ideals and economic interests. Maybe so. But the U.S. also had another interest in Egypt: torture.
