It appears there may be some traffic when I finally arrive at my destination, since I will coincide with the funeral of Augusto Pinochet.
He will not have a state funeral, but only a military one. Gott sei Dank, as my aunt would have said, and Alhamdulillahi, as we would have said in my Arabic class.
That makes this evening an excellent time to remember Orlando Letelier and many more. Presentes. Ahora. Y siempre.
The Unapologetic Mexican has an excellent post on Pinochet and his nefarious contexts.
