    Ms. Reisinger, your left wing is showing. What a poor and obnoxious piece of writing -- from the headline‘s smug trivialization of that matters at stake and the use of quotation marks around the word "condolences" in the first sentence, right on through to the end. I wonder if Ms. Reisinger has ever heard of the Colombian FARC before? She must not have given that her story doesn‘t mention them even once. Perhaps a little Google search would help her understand the incredibly dangerous situation in which Chiquita employees worked during that time. I know one thing for certain: Ms. Reisinger would NEVER subject herself or her family to the conditions without the protection of the "right wing terrorists" she so casually condemns. And important grammar tip -- that‘s a proper use of quotation marks.
