Clearly, not a lot of deep thinking on my part today.

Via the BBC: Honduras drops arrest warrants for ousted Manuel Zelaya.

As we all may recall, Honduran President Manuel “Mel” Zelaya was invited, one fine Sunday morning, to board a plane to Costa Rica. Now, I must confess that I would very much like to go to Costa Rica, but there is a good way to be invited to Costa Rica, and a bad way. The problem in the Zelaya case is that said invitation was delivered by the military while Mel was still in his jammies.

At any rate, after many adventures, Mel found himself out of a job and is currently residing in the Dominican Republic and would like to return home and was a combo vacation invite and Trumpian “you’re fired.”

The piece notes that despite having three arrest warrants cancelled, he still faces corruption charges.

All my posts on Honduras can be found here, which includes the many adventures of Mel Zelaya and a discussion of the fact that, yes, is was a coup.

Is asking to see a professor’s e-mails a legitimate open records request or is it an attempt at silencing a critic?

From me @OTB:  Political Warfare in WI.

Last year, after an opportunity to witness Colombia’s congressional elections first hand, I noted that there was some clear confusion on the part of both voters and poll workers/vote counters regarding the ballot’s format.  See, for example, Ballot Design (and Voter Knowledge) Matters.

One of the problems was confusion over the way that voters should vote for candidate preferences for parties with open lists.

For the 2024 local elections (set for October of this years) a redesigned (really, reorganized) ballot will be used (click for a larger image):

2011 Asamblea Antioquia

While this may not solve all of the issues noted in the above-linked post, it should be far more intuitive in terms of the open list issue.

Accompanying a story at Colombia Reports is the following photo:

I had no idea that Garcia was that big/Santos was that small.

Seriously, the above almost looks like the stitching together of two photos with slightly different perspectives.  However, upon more view of video at Colombia’s presidential web site, it is clear that this is an accurate shot.
