Editor's Comment: Titles in "Little Brooklyn"? Hey, why not? Apparently future President Juan Carlos Varela has a strong environmentalist streak in him. I think it's a good (great) thing that he wants to modify the changes to the Mining Code to make it a better deal for the communities in the areas where mining will be taking place. There's a lot of money to go around - this copper deal has a multi-billion dollar bottom line for the Republic of Panama, so they can afford to be "generous."
