    Bit of an improvement on his bank-robbing predecessor. Well done Sir.

    “ Vasquez and his medical team ”, was he expecting this or was it contrived? As President would he carry all the medication for emergencies? Would he have known in advance that he would need certain medicines? Sounds very South American to me, but well done if true.

    The 'government' medics consider that everybody dies when they are 80.

    Given Vasquez is 76 in January I would have been amazed if he did not have a medical team with him 24/7.

    So at 69 I have only 11 years left, allegedly! :o)

    You wouldn't want to get crook on a plane that KFC was traveling on.....
