From a reader:
While Colombians risk their lives to save American hostages, Democratic members of Congress do the politically expedient thing and oppose a free trade agreement with Columbia. It’s so embarrassing.
From another reader:
Che Guevara shirts! Isn’t that perfect? Once the rebels had ascertained that the crew of the helicopter weren’t stupid American college students with trust funds, of *course* they’d assume that they were fellow thugs.
I was already giddy over this story, but that detail makes it even better.
