The president said that "today is a historic day for Bolivia and the Department of La Paz", which will bring to life the dreams of the people by exploring their hydrocarbon riches.
(Remember: Presently, the medialuna (the departments in rebellion) garner a huge share of natural-gas resources, all out of proportion to the percentage of indigenous Bolivians.)
Also, I don't want to spill the beans, but I hear that a major U.S. television story is coming down the pike that will investigate the U.S. government's alleged (editor's note: make that certain) meddling in Bolivian affairs. I'll keep yelling about it here. Seems to work a bit!
