Colombians rally against FARC

This is certainly encouraging: For the past several months, there has been a groundswell of opinion against the left-wing FARC guerrilla movement in Colombia, and the recent (cynical) release of hostages did nothing to change this. Yesterday, hundreds of thousands of protesters voiced their opinion on the matter, carrying huge banners that said:

No more kidnapping, no more lies, no more deaths, no more FARC!

Just imagine: a mass-scale protest march against the self-styled "defenders of the people." Oh, the times, they are a-changin'...

Glenn Reynolds hails this as an example of the main theme in his "Army of Davids" book.

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
