Cambio is the spanish word for CHANGE. Obama's campaign was based on change. Panama's new President, Ricardo Martinelli, also ran under the mantra of Cambio. It's interesting to note that Obama is scheduling a vacation that will cost the US taxpayers around Twenty Million dollars. Martinelli, on the other hand just pledged to donate his entire Presidential salary to charity. He also uses his own plane at his own cost to travel. He doesn't live in the Presidential Palace, preferring to pay his own way.
As an ex-patriot, living in Panama, I believe Panama got the better deal. The changes I see in Panama are good. The changes in the USA make me sad.

Most of my script work has been created in SCREENWITER by Movie Magic. This is not a common software for the masses -- dedicated mostly to the movie industry. I was able to convert "Partners," a screenplay adapted from my novel of the same name, into HTML and PDF formats. In the conversion process, the spacing, font and some of the symbols got scrambled. It puffs the script from 110 pages to 140. I tried posing the script on this site but it looked like scrambled eggs. Soooo, if you want to read it, just drop me an e-mail. firstname.lastname@example.org.

This blog is not working like I'd planned. Most of the fault is mine as I haven't been out promoting it to the masses. One thing I have learned, however, is that to create an interaction, the reader has to have a Gmail account in order to leave a comment. That's a restriction that limits off-hand remarks. I'll take time this week-end to rework this blog.
