Mel is just an annoyance

I think that Mr. Zelaya is partly correct. I see him more as a temporary annoyance, rather than a problem. He is clearly a symptom of a broader probem in Honduras, which is an unjust and inequitable social and economic status quo. But to refer to him… as a problem is really to give him a much higher level of importance than he merits. Thus, neither do I see him as a solution to anything that is truly important in Honduras… which, again, is about how to change the status quo. I think that all the focus on Mr. Zelaya has done nothing but detract from the real work that needs to be done in Honduras (and the real dialogue that has to occur) to make the country a place truly worth living for the majority of the Honduran people.
