By Dialogo September 10, 2010 Twelve people were wounded Wednesday when a bomb exploded outside the Colombia intelligence agency’s offices in the southern city of Pasto, near the Ecuadoran border, the Red Cross said. A “low-intensity package bomb was left outside the Administrative Department of Security (DAS) building, next to a lamppost, by a man who then ran away,” Pasto Red Cross official Henry Palacios told AFP. He said 12 passersby and workers from the DAS building were wounded in the blast and taken to area hospitals. Narino department Governor Antonio Navarro told Caracol radio that two of the wounded were in serious condition and that the damage wrought by the bomb was considerable. He said authorities suspect the bombing is the work of the leftist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), the country’s oldest and strongest rebel group. Pasto is the capital of Narino department, one of FARC’s strongholds in southern Colombia.
Ahhhhh, Thanksgiving! A sport-loving man’s favorite day! What could be better–a hardy meal with 5 or 6 football games to watch after you stuff yourself with turkey and all the trimmings? This is great, right? Oh, you are the lady of the house, and you don’t see it quite the same as your husband! Just maybe he could take the kids outside and run some energy off of them while you clean up after the meal. Or better yet, he and the kids could help mom clean up so that all can sit down and relax or go out and have some fun. If you are the mom, you might even say “how about dad and the kids cleaning up this one time?” Oh, come on, we all know that on Thanksgiving everybody likes the turkey and all of its trimmings, and I suppose, most people don’t begrudge watching a game or maybe two. I do find it hard, however, even as much as I like sports, to believe that the TV is the man’s possession and the kitchen is his wife’s. Come on, guys, give your wife a break. Happy Thanksgiving!
