Ecuador's president: Smile turns to frown | The Economist

Not a great article from the Economist for Mr. Correa.

Apparently, as an interesting aside, his was the most burned effigy, this New Year's. The effigy burning is a raucous event in Ecuador that I had the privilege of experiencing first hand as the clock struck the Midnight hour on December 31, 2009.

I didn't burn Correa.
