In the news the only real big headline over the weekend was that the Panameñista party confirmed and validated Juan Carlos Varela as their presidential candidate. And even that's not a headline because he really didn't have a serious challenger. Only about 25% of those eligible to vote turned out, because there was nothing to decide. So we now have two out of three presidential candidates officially confirmed for the May 2014 election. The only real interesting primary election is the CD which will be held in Mat 2013.
The rest of the news from the weekend was a handful of routine stories about car crashes, drug busts, and sports (typical for a weekend) but nothing earth shattering. I'll be back in the saddle by tomorrow morning at the latest. Have a great day.
