Molina Wins Election

Otto Perez Molina and his "Mano Duro" has won the Guatemalan presidential election. My hope is that he is somehow successful in making the country safer for all Guatemalans without returning to the human rights ills of the past, especially given his history. Admittedly I am worried but I also know that the security situation for average Guatemalans is dire. He got the vote of many kindred friends of mine so will try to be as optimistic as they are.

Just an observation--he should be referred to either as Peréz, or as Peréz Molina, not Molina as that would be his mother's surname and would not be used as his primary surname. Not to nitpick, just many Americans don't understand Latino surnames.

I worry a bit too, but let's hope things get better. God be with them!
