It's akin to a public service announcement for a journalist to put the spotlight on the vile organization known as FARC-EP (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia - Ejército del Pueblo).* These self-styled Marxists, who frequently kidnap tourists, have revolutionized daily life for many South American kids.
