Motivated by the current (2011) political climate in Wisconsin it seems reasonable to devote some time and effort to comment on issues and some of the hyperbola. So we in the public should do what we can to help focus "journalists" on delineating real facts versus spin. If you accept the spin you do not understand the policy implications.
DEATH THREAT PROTEST: La Fundación Contra el Terrorismo is targeting Guatemalan anthropologist Irmalicia Velásquez Nimatuj (Ph.D., University of Texas, Austin). Her tireless work for the poor, especially Mayan people, has attracted their wrath. Dra. Velásquez fears for her life. Please send a protest letter -or better yet, from your institution, association, etc.- to elPeri®odico at firstname.lastname@example.org The more we protest the more protected Dr. Velásquez might be. Thank you
