2. True. Pinera is a living example of money in politics.

Someone who - what with his lack of charisma and criminal record (the Banca of Talca heist in '82) - would have had no chance in politics, but for his money (and support from others with money).

"When you're rich," as Tevye in the Fiddler on the Roof reminded us, "they think you really know."

Still. Piņera has been practically a statesman compared to Macri - much as Pinochet was far less disastrous than Videla and Galtieri were in their day (can you imagine!).

Have a great week, Judi. Stay cool and hydrated!
