Editor's Comment: I love this picture of Ana Matilde Gomez. When the newspaper editors are selecting a photograph of someone to use for an article, they can pick a photo that is flattering (if they like the person), or they can pick one like this (if they don't like the person). The caption contest would go something like "Ana Matilde Gomez - more chins than a Chinese laundry..." But putting that aside for a moment - Gomez is right, sort of. Rather than resigning, Mulino could have just fired Perez in a very public manner, and then left Martinelli to decide how to deal with the fallout. Martinelli and Mulino had a meeting on Thursday night before he resigned, and I'm sure Mulino said he wanted Perez gone, or he would resign himself. But then again, why would anyone take political advice from Ana Matilde Gomez, because she herself got fired by the Martinelli administration and the Supreme Court over politics. Whatever. Fish swimming around the bowl. There they go again...
