Plans and schemes During the presidential debate this past weekend, Alan Garcia pulled a floppy disk out of his coat pocket and said that it contained his government program, contrasting this "modern" media with Alejandro Toledo's "antiquated" paper publications.

The gesture reminded me of when Garcia gave his inaugural speech before Congress in 1985. He announced a score of legislative initiatives and reforms. With each new measure, he held up thick folder and said that the respective bill was being presented to Congress for its attention. Great theatrics, but the folders actually contained only blank paper. They were just props.
