This video of actress Belén Marrero talking about her friend Mónica Spear is not my cup of tea, but something tells me that, in our telenovela-obsessed country, it hits a nerve. It’s a good moment for her, putting into words the absolute despair of many Venezuelans.
I also like the link that she makes between crime … and the government. This is one person who understood the gist of yesterday’s post.
Update: Ultimas Noticias is reporting the presumed culprit has been in and out of jails for years. Thank you, judicial system. Anybody out there still think this is a problem of culture and education? (HT: El gran Willy)
