NICARAGUA: An echo of the final gong

When Pontius Pilate asked "What is truth?", he must have had Nicaragua in mind. Both Tim Brown and Stephen Schwartz have an extraordinary knowledge of modern Nicaragua, but they disagree on such points as whether the man who killed Somoza was disguised as a waiter or as someone enjoying a dance. I am putting them in touch with each other, and suggest that together they write a definitive book on modern Nicaragua and then present the first copy to Pontius Pilate. They might even get him to write a foreword.
