Object from space hits Peru

A mysterious fireball plummeted from the heavens on Tuesday and crashed near Puno in southern Peru. Dozens of Peruvians who took a look at the crater were sickened by noxious fumes. A Peruvian scientist "ruled out any possibility that the fallen object might be a satellite" (see BBC), but there are other possibilities. This event will no doubt spur wild rumors about "OVNIs" (Objetos Voladores No-Identificados), a.k.a. UFOs. .

Ruling on Fujimori?

Meanwhile, Chilean courts are expected to rule on Friday as to whether former President of Peru Alberto Fujimori will be extradited to Peru. See La Republica.

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

NOTE: Thus far, only blog posts related to politics and baseball are included in this list.

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in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made: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)
