NY Times Don't Try to Predict. This Is Peru.: "What makes Peru unique, and the fortunes of Mr. García a case in point, is its ability to astonish and its utter unpredictability. Changes in public opinion can be instantaneous; heroes become goats, or the other way around, within weeks or even days. This is a mark of weakness, not just in institutions, but in the political convictions of the people themselves."

Well-worth the read. This is an example of a journalist taking time out from breaking news stories to provide a more deep-think piece.
