“The majority of Chile didn’t feel the impact of the dictatorship. On the contrary, they were relieved. Because before you couldn’t buy anything imported, you had to pay for what was produced in Chile–expensive and bad. Over night, you started to find out what was missing. The people won. Then the streets were cleaned and people started to have jobs.”
So the news out of Chile a few minutes ago is that ambassador Otero (for it is he above) has “had his resignation accepted” (i.e. Seb Piñera has booted his ass outta town) even after he gave it the full apology. This is good. I’m actually beginning to like this Piñera dude, much to my own surprise.
