I woke up this morning with Evo on the brain. (Get your mind out of the gutter, people, it wasn’t like THAT.) It occurred to me that it had been a while since I’d posted some pix of him doing something nice for other folks down there in Bolivia. So I scoped around to see what he’s been up to lately, and sure enough I found something:
Evo opening a new soccer field for the mining town of Colquiri, near La Paz.
As you can see, he’s dressed to play, and once the ribbon-cutting was all over and done with, that’s just what he did:
The grass is artificial, so the locals won’t have to squander any precious resources maintaining it. That’s important in a place like Bolivia, where shrinking mountain glaciers mean dwindling water supplies.
And that is the only time you’ll ever see Evo astroturfing–in any sense of the word!
