What’s In It For Nicaragua?

January 18, 2008
Dear Nica Times:
Since Nicaragua, like Costa Rica, bowed to U.S. pressure and signed CAFTA, and now that Nicaragua has released the American who was convicted of murdering a Nicaraguan, let’s make sure Nicaragua gets its debt forgiven, like Costa Rica did, with a huge payoff from the United States.
I am sure Nicaragua, like Costa Rica, can use more funds to develop more national parks.
