 Don't worry about me, I'm in BC Canada selling my
homeroast so I can get back to Oaxaca in time for the days
of the dead in early November, when my many lady friends
there can tell me all about their take over of that radio
station and the ouster of the vile, despicible govenor
Ulises Ruiz.
 I'm in contact by phone, and it sounds pretty exciting-but
a little less scarey than in '78 when they threw out the
brutal and corrupt govenor of the day then -also mainly due
to woman power. BTW, the rains have been timely, and the
crop of '07 should be a good one if no hurricanes  show up
to spoil the show.
 Saludos,
  Charlie

4) From: Ed Needham
During the Bosnia / Croatian conflicts back in the '90's, I made voice 
contact with an English speaking Bosnian using Microsoft Netmeeting over the 
internet.  That was back when you could see everyone on the servers, and 
could pick and choose who you wanted to try to make contact with.
I inquired whether the US news reports of increased fighting in the city 
were true and whether it was as serious as they were making it out to be. 
He said, "Wait a minute.  They are about 100 yards down the street, let me 
take a look."   I chuckled when he returned and said he wasn't too 
concerned, that it was mainly a problem of when the Croats got drunk, they 
would come across the border and harass the Bosnians.  True story.
I tell this, not to minimize the conflict or the destruction, but to say 
that sometimes it's a matter of perspective how we interpret the events in 
other parts of the world.  Interpreting these events from an Americanized 
outlook will frequently bring about misunderstanding, which seems to be the 
prevailing way of interpreting things these days in the news.
Charlie's story is a good example of this.
Thanks for sharing that Charlie.
