I want to thank the editors of ATENCION, the English and Spanish language weekly paper put out by the Biblioteca here in San Miguel for their even-handed approach. I´ll just quote an editorial comment in this week´s paper.
" Many readers may be aware of a current dispute between two parties here in town. A pressure group has formed and an unsigned letter was submitted for publication. Our policy on this is very clear. One of the parties involved came to the office but refused to be quoted or allow us to name him(it´s a "him"). Both the US Consul and the mayor agree that the matter is in the hands of the judicial authorities, where it belongs. Atencion will not publish as "news" any story where names are witheld and facts remain unsubstantiated. Nor will we participate in whispering campaigns."
Elegant, brief and to the point. ´Nuff said.
