the Honduran Ahmadinejad

After what I have learned, I ask myself why, why didn't we let Hitler carry out his historic mission? Forgive me for the grotesque expression. But I ask myself after I have realized this and many other things. I believe it should have been fair and valid to let Hitler finish his historic vision…

- David Romero, Executive Director of Radio Globo and one of Manuel Zelaya's most ardent supporters, on air recently (the station was closed down by the Micheletti government early last week for sedition and, as the above example demonstrates, hate speech). I believe in freedom of the press, but like all freedoms it comes with responsibilities and ethical standards.

Dime con quién andas y te diré quién eres.
