Most Self-Absorbed Headline

Ousted President's Return Halts Honduran Cigar Shipments

The oversimplified claim by Andrew Nagy is that the protests are responsible for the closing of the Airports and the shutting down of the border crossings, and of course, the curfew. Not one mention of the de facto government's responsibility for all of this. My favorite sentence: "Hysteria has affected the cigar industry too, particularly the Alec Brady Cigar Co...." Hysteria?! where did that come from? Sheesh.

Is this all "smoke and mirrors"?
Sorry. I couldn't resist this. Maybe it's just the "hysteria."
When things are bad, any excuse for laughter is a welcome relief!
