Very interesting Judi. Compare that with the life and
death situation in another democracy in Chile and the
Pinochet situation with their appeal courts and
Supreme Courts as well. Take special note of the Dec.
5th LA Times article. I, personally, was opposed to
England doing what it did with Pinochet (after all its
years of colonization), but am happy to see Chile
taking care of its own business.
Thanks for that in person information.
