The last few days of June

AOG, Madrid

What a week, what a week. A week for freedom in more ways than one.

First off the continuing struggle for freedom in Iran and the search for truth defies the will of the Ayatollahs.

As if that were not enough, shock horror, Farrah Fawcett died. My favourite Angel.

But, wonders did not cease, since a few hours later, Michael Jackson died too, trumping and obliterating any further mention of Ms. Fawcett’s struggle with cancer.

Both artists are, in their own way, free from the struggles their daily lives, according to the press, had become. I wish them happiness.

Come Sunday, Honduras stages a Coup, and president Manuel Zelaya is kidnapped by the Honduran Army and flown to Costa Rica, from where he stages a press conference and assures all and sundry that he will remain as President elect until next year.

Soon enough, Hugo Chávez and Cuba started their outpour of support.
