For Us Gringos

Some interesting comments and attendees at the Colegio Cumbres funeral in Santiago, Chile:

Among those present at the funeral were Interior Minister Edmundo Perez Yoma, the widow of former dictator Augusto Pinochet, Lucia Hiriart, as well as Sen. Juan Antonio Coloma, who is the president of the hard-right Independent Democratic Union party. The Legion of Christ is a powerful, very conservative sect within the Catholic Church, and several of the girls killed in Friday’s tragic accident were related to some of the nation’s most influential families.
