VQR on Chiquita’s support of terrorists.

With Tuesday’s news that Chiquita will pay a $25M fine for providing millions of dollars in aid to Colombian terrorist group FARC, suddenly VQR’s forthcoming fall issue, dedicated entirely to South American issues, looks downright prescient. To that end, we’ve just posted publicly a history of Chiquita’s practices of of running cocaine on their freighters and providing arms to terrorists — an article that resulted from our sending Phillip Robertson to Colombia to investigate. My fellow geeks may enjoy the awesome JavaScript zoomy effect that I’ve just employed to allow people to get a better look at our often-great photography. That’s thanks to Torstein Hønsi’s excellent Highslide.
