I just arrived in BogotÃ¡, three hours late. (Seth Godin is right: American Airlines “gave up a long, long time ago.”)
I’ll be speaking tomorrow at a conference on U.S.-Colombian relations at the National University.
Meanwhile, I see that the posting I wrote while in the airport this morning got picked up by El Tiempo.com while I was still in flight. This has brought a flood of commenters, some of them exceedingly vicious. While I hate to moderate comments, I will no longer approve those that simply offer variations on “Piedad CÃ³rdoba is a guerrilla sympathizer” without offering any evidence. She clearly is not. She is a politician who is learning the hard way that being a mediator is a very, very hard job.
Anyway, here are some pictures of downtown BogotÃ¡ during this evening’s rush hour.
