Argentina bribery

According to the Financial Times, Argentine legislators solicited bribes from foreign banks in exchange for delaying passage of legislation that would have imposed emergency tax hikes on them. The bill's author, Senator Jose Luis Barrionuevo, is a former labor leader who once boasted, "No one in Argentina makes their money by working."

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
